The Pterodactyls will always be flying above ground, usually much faster than the player. Some dactyls pick you up and carry you. When dactyls starting to pant while picking you up, it will drop you rather quickly. There's a lot of them in Ptero Storm.
When the Strength Boost is activated, you cannot kill Dactyls, unlike other dinos.
Burning Dactyls EditMain Article: Burning Dactyl Some Pterodactyls will knock you back because they are burning. The burning dactyls have their own speedrun, Dactyl Dodge.
Special Levels EditMain Article: Ptero Storm
The Pterodactyls will always appear in every speedrun. A lot of dactyls appear when you ascending towards up to the hills.
Some Dactyls carry boulders that can be dropped.
You can avoid unwanted dactyl pickups by ducking in mid air. You can't be picked up when one pterodactyl is carrying a boulder.
- Bronze: 2 x Dactyl chain
- Silver: 3 x Dactyl chain
- Gold: 4 x Dactyl chain
While it is possible to get a higher chain, it will not contribute to your Trophies. It will, however, give you a score boost.
The best speedrun to do this on is Ptero Storm.
Dactyl Eggs Edit
A Dactyl Egg is worth 10 normal Eggs. Dactyl eggs are slightly yellow and drop down from the dactyls. Like normal eggs, they will easily crack once they hit the ground. They are considerably harder to save. Right before a dactyl egg is dropped, the pterodactyl's eyes will widen to a comedic effect.
