I'm growing quite frustrated trying to figure out everything that the Dinosaur Survival add-on comes with. So far I have no answer for the following:
What does a Velociraptor Claw do? I can't find a single use for it. No crafting recipes, not usable in banners, not a potion ingredient, not used to tame anything, nothing. I can't figure out if these things even have a purpose.
I can't figure out a way to tame Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Pteranodons, Brontosaurus, or Compsognathus. I'm assuming Dilosaurus (the Spitters) can't be tamed. When I try to feed a Compsognathus (my whole group calls them Compies), it will show the hearts like I tamed it and then it will immediately attack me if I take the food out of my hand. If I put two of them into love mode, they will breed and then all 3 of them will attack me regardless of whether I have food in my hand.
I refuse to believe someone would put so much work into an add-on and then make all but 2 of the dinosaurs in it unable to be truly tamed. I am frustrated that I can't find anything whatsoever on the internet about it either. Microsoft needs to start making it mandatory for all publishers of add-ons to provide complete documentation somewhere of everything they added in the modpack so people can at least know what they're getting.
The Velociraptor claw replaces the Rabbit Foot. You can tame baby raptors with some raw meat. You can also tame baby T-Rex with raw meat. Adult T-ex and adult raptors can be ridden. You don't need a saddle for them.
Triceratops are neutral creatures. You don't need to tame them to ride them. You are always able to ride them. They replace Llamas.
Stegosaurus can't be tamed. It is a neutral mob.
Pteranodons replace Bats. You can feed them fish.
Brontosaurus are friendly creatures.
Compies can be distracted with some raw meat. Dilophosaurus spit will blind you for a certain amount of time.

Part of the problem is that the new creatures are not really new. They are replacements of previously existing mobs.
Another part of the problem the underlying philosophy of trial and error, figure it out for yourself. If one is expert in Minecraft creatures (mobs), then there may be less wasted time trying to figure out some taming issues. If one is not yet expert, then there is a huge amount of wasted time. Tedium, not enjoyment.
Cute, enjoyable mobs, such as giraffes and all terrain vehicles (Wildlife Savannah world) should have been truly new entities, and not based on previous hostile mobs. There are manuals within the game that explain some aspects. The information about which so-called new mobs replace which underlying previous mobs is not easily found, anywhere. With trial and error, I have found some of this info from the creators and/or expert Minecrafters on YoutTube, and posting questions under their videos, or as Send Message, within their Channel. That is where I get real answers, within a reasonable time frame. Even then, some answers are 'just keep on trying to see what you get'. When a reasonable result is possible, that is often OK. When a reasonable result is totally impossible, is it not OK to get stuck in mission impossible, due to obscure programming.
