7.3 UPDATEEdit

Note: Make completely sure that you have a secure enclosure with no gaps for this mob. It will almost certainly fly away otherwise if not ordered to stay.

Pteranodon ('teh-ran-oh-don', meaning "toothless wing") are carnivorous flying reptilian prehistoric creatures from the Late Cretaceous period that were included in the original Fossils and Archeology mod. They are the first and only pterosaurs in the mod so far, and one of two creatures capable of flight, the other being confuciusornis. They are also diurnal, meaning are active during the day, and will sleep at night. Adult males are 1.9 blocks tall around the crest, and are 3.1 blocks long, and females are 1.2 blocks tall, and are 2.1 blocks long. They both have a wingspan of around four blocks when in flight. Their white and black texture is inspired by sea birds such as osprey. Newborns are crestless and flightless, 0.3 blocks tall, and they are fully grown within nine Minecraft days. They can be given essence of chicken to grow faster by one day, at the cost of hunger.

Pteranodon, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various ways. Having a low mood means it may attack or avoid you, having a high mood will make it passive. Pteranodons require a high mood to not attack on sight. Right-click it with a DinoPedia to see what its mood is at.

They can drop pteranodon meatpteranodon fingersleg bonesarm bonesrib cages, vertebraeclawsfeet, and skulls upon death.

A fossil version of the pteranodon can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a Mesozoic-era prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being a pteranodon.

Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the overworld and must be created by the player. As they are non-aquatic flying reptiles, they hatch from large eggs that need to be warmed by any light source.

Pteranodons, despite their behavior being listed as "Timid", are hostile piscivorous pterosaurs, meaning they can only eat fish meat (including prehistoric fish) or fish eggs. Due to their general sluggishness on land, their most unique and greatest ability is flight, which they will be able to do at adulthood in 9 minecraft days (baby pteranodon are limited to the ground until they grow up). When they learn to fly, they generally will spend more time in the air than on land, and are extremely fast, as well as reaching heights beyond the clouds, making it a good idea to completely close them in an aviary. In order to take off from the ground properly, they require at least a one block drop-off point, and will not be able to fly in very flat terrain. Another way to force them into flight is by pushing them off a high surface. Hitting them can also make them begin flying, though they will now be hostile towards you. If pushed into a river or the ocean, they will automatically begin flying, skimming the surface of the water. While doing this, it is possible for them to catch fish (as items), though they may fly past it rather than eating it. When falling or coming back down to the ground, they will slowly glide down to the ground to stop fall damage, like chickens. If they do not have enough room to fly, they normally sit on the ground and sometimes attempt to jump into the air anyway to no avail.

They are generally slow walkers when on land, but when aggroed, surprisingly can become quite speedy. Upon each attack, they fly or 'jump' back usually, which can often result in them winning fights they normally would lose, as the other mob cannot properly counterattack.

Despite their small diet range, they are generally aggressive towards mobs smaller or weaker than them at low or medium moods, including the player, hostile mobs, all vanilla animals, dodos dryosaurus, compsognathus, confuciusornis, henodus, and velociraptor. They will not eat the meat of any of these mobs. Their predators are allosaurus, ceratosaurus, deinonychus, kelenken mosasaurus, sarcosuchus, and tyrannosaurus. Baby pteranodons may be at risk from a wider array of carnivores as well.

Sleeping pteranodon

Pteranodons will interact with thethered logs, scratching posts, and will chase toy balls, providing significant mood boosts. They are diurnal and will sleep at night, however they will not sleep when flying.

Adult pteranodons can breed every five minutes as adults if there is a male and female present. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.

TAMINGEdit

Pteranodon can be tamed in three different ways. The first way requires the player to stand within six blocks of the egg as it hatches to automatically tame it. The second way is to hand-feed one until it is tame. The final way is to forcibly tame them using a whip. They are ordered with arrows. They were previously able to be ridden, but this has been removed because of the small size of the creature.

FEEDINGEdit

Pteranodons, as piscivores, cannot eat when hungry despite it hunting a variety of mobs, as their diet is limited to fish. Because of this, they heavily rely on the player and need to be either hand-fed alive and cooked fish (vanilla and modded), Sio-Chiu-Le, and fish spawn, or have a feeder with meat inside it nearby.

Pteranodon (teh-ran-oh-don, meaning "Toothless Wing") AKA Pterosaur, are prehistoric creatures that were included in the original Fossils and Archeology mod. They are 1.9 blocks tall around the crest, and are 3.1 blocks long, with a wingspan of around four blocks. They are fully grown in nine Minecraft days.

BEHAVIOREdit

Pteranodons are mostly peaceful creatures that cannot break blocks. They are very slow when walking, which makes them rely on the sky. Baby pteranodons do not have the the ability to fly. At six days old, however, they will learn to fly. Once they begin to fly, they spend most of their time in the air, and are extremely fast, making it a good idea to completely close them in an aviary. When falling or coming back down to the ground, they open their wings to stop fall damage, like chickens. If they do not have room to fly, they normally sit on the ground and sometimes attempt to fly anyway to no avail.

As neutral creatures, they will try to defend themselves when attacked. They do not hunt when hungry.

Pteranodons breed every five minutes as adults. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.

TAMINGEdit

Pteranodon can be tamed in two different ways. The first way requires the player to stand within six blocks of the egg as it hatches to automatically tame it. The other way is to hand-feed one. They are ordered with arrows. They were previously able to be ridden, but this has been removed because of the small size of the creature.

FEEDING Edit

Pteranodons cannot hunt when hungry, as they are too slow. Because of this, they need to be either hand-fed (fish, raw chicken, Sio-Chiu-Le) or have a feeder with meat inside nearby.
