Since there are so many in a group it’s hard to escape them, however they have about the health of a good dodo and won’t do much damage... ALSO if your trying to tame bring enough narcotics to KNOCK IT OUT! It wakes up within seconds because of size...
They are no problem fighting. However, they can knock you off cliffs. I saw a compy go shooting down a cliff, right where I was half a second ago. Don’t even try to tame. Carry a dimorphodon or a vulture on your shoulder as compy repellent.
Breeding a high level compy army is a waste of your time so taming a metric f*ck ton is the way to go. Riding a slower animal while surrounded by your army feels pretty awesome and it's hilarious to whistle attack target on whatever irritates you.
Got SOOO annoying over by the area on the island where the west coast and the southern jungle meet. They travel in packs most of the time. The worst place to encounter at is the rocky areas. If your character is getting damaged and you don't know what it is, look down and around your legs, there possibly will be a pack of four or less. They run off when they are damaged to where they are at 30 health or less, then they come back, so you have to pay attention to where they run off to. You don't want to encounter a group of them if you're already at low health, trust me.
These things are kind of cute. Alone they will look at you curiously but within seconds more come and start attacking. Fairly weak, I decided I wanted to tame one. These high maintenance gremlins only take prime meats. I turned my back for 2 seconds to get some meat and she was awake. The toroidity goes down so quick you either have to trap them or have the meat ready to go. I'm going to catch an itchy first cause they get prime meat for you. Wish me luck!
