Tip to new players....when a little skinny compy comes up and looking lovingly at you, that heart above its head does not mean it loves you...it means it loves its mate which is probably with the rest of a horde of equally cute killer compys planning tear you appart like an impatient child unwrapping a present.
Once I killed a Diplo and got some prime meat. Not wanting to waste it I scoured the beach for something amazing. I spotted a small silver compy that reminded me of the moon. It was a quite low level, eight, and I did not care. I tamed it and later on I was being attacked by a Alpha Raptor. This compy, now named Cresent, ran in but was too late, I was dead. A few minutes later I found her again. She was next to the dead body of a raptor! I renamed her Alpha Cresent. She now stays on my shoulder with pride. #CresentIsTheTrueAlpha
