These creatures are the best starter dino in ark. I tamed a lvl 90 with 3 mejoberries and it can kill 150 stegos. If you harvest the stego with LT, you can get like 9 prime if u upgrade. Also amazing at getting fiber, better than a therri.And, amazing for thatch!
Feeding it what you want it to gather has NO EFFECT on its father rates. These are determined by the additional level granted every level to increase your moschops' gathering efficiency of your chosen resource.
Best for if you need fast polymer for crafting. I have used this countless times to make all the industrial equipment. But only level up health and weight and put the gathering levels into polymer. Mines at 530% and I get 50 polymer per penguin. ðŸ‘
