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
These guys SHOULD work similar to a companion in other games. It should be able to wield a sword along with the ability to wear more than just a helmet. Having a tame that acts as a warrior would be very cool for battle in ARK.
I reckon they should add a much bigger version of this because this just looks dull in my opinion, I mean its strong but not in comparison to other creatures like the Carno and Allosaurus. The important part if they add a bigger ape is that its tameable.
