Glowbugs make an essential light source, but only few know how to tame the seemingly untamable insect. It enjoys one food, craves one thing, and is instantly tamed when you provide glowbugs with it. The food is forcetame.
They get all spazzy if you kill something near them, or if you snap near them with a Dino. They otherwise move very slowly. Be careful not to spazz them out, especially if you're really low on charge and need them to refill your battery/pet.
