When tamed, the Achatina can produce Achatina paste, an alternative to cementing paste, passively when on wandering. You could also collect it when they are moving, their paste/slime will be on the ground shaped in a similar feces ball.
Will only eat Sweet Veggie Cakes even after being tamed! Each cake fills the food by about 200. Poops paste as well as prudces paste in inventory but ceases production once 100 paste is in inventory. Increases organic polymer spoil timer by 3x
1. x3 organic polymer spoil timer
2. Passively produces organic polymer and cementing paste when wandering
3. Poops Cementing paste, even while still, but if still, you must move the achatina to see the paste
It will only produce 100 Achatina paste at a time. Once it holds 100 it stops producing so be sure to collect it often. You can carry these while flying a mountain as well so flying to the artic with one and clubbing penguins and storing the organic polymer in the snail takes advantage of the 3x spoil timer. Pump carry weight and FOOD
Once they have 100 achatina paste in their inventory, they will start producing organic polymer, I believe they make like 10 stacks of 10 organic polymer as their max, so if you want quick polymer for the morning that lasts twice as long, give them 100 achatina paste
In the wild, the Achatina should not be your first item of prey, as it will crall into it's shell, which can lead to a number of problems. One being the fact that the shell has a very high defense, therefore you could kill yourself due to recoil before the thing even has low health. Another problem is that the Achatina is found in the Swamps and Redwood Forests, some of the more dangerous areas of the ARK, so while attacking the Achatina, other predators have the chance to sneak up on you while your trying to clame your snail supper.
Taming, on the other hand, is very useful for this species, as if set on wondering, can produce Achatina Paste (Cementing Paste produced by the Achatina) and Organic Polymer, which can last up to 3 times as long in the Achatina's inventory. While the Achatina collects the Organic Polymer in it's inventory, the Achatina drops the Achatina Paste that has a low despawn time, and serves as a replacement for it's feces.
