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.
These beautiful Beast can gather Fiber Super Great, not to mention they can also gather tatch somewhat decent. they can also pick up shoulder pets and carry them on their shoulder, which can be very useful with a jerboa. Also when it comes to raiding and let’s say the enemy has a bad roof but strong walls or no roof at all, it can throw you pretty far and you can get in and break the roof. or if your on aberration they can grab onto zip lines. and if your ever in a situation were your dying and it’s about to die you can make it throw you far to keep you from dying but your tame most like will die and that is all i can tell you.
