I had a gigantopithecus called shiela and she was a good tame, then, I was chilling out and then we got attacked by microraptors and I was knocked off of shiela, she ran off to fight it and when I woke up she was gone, I have not seen her since, #pray for shiela, if you pray for her you get a cookie 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Possibly the most useful creature to go caving with as his small size but large health and damage allows him to withstand onycs,spiders and scorpions haven't encountered a arthurplura yet so not sure how effective he is against it
On Xbox, left tab throws you (It's like a spear, the longer you hold down the harder it throws, but there is a max), the other special attack, what you would use for crouching, is what you use to pick up only fiber, and regular attack only picks up berries. It can sprint, swim fast, and jump. Best of all it can wear hats. I equipped my hat with a cowboy hat skin, and it looks hilarious.
Dating is the best way to tame these. The appropriate dress for the occasion is a full suit of Ghille Armor. Pick your ape date up with a Quetz, drop in a taming pen, and hand-feed Mejo Berries. He/she will love you for it!
