Once I tamed one of these and named it itchy. Itchy got his name from when I don’t mount him he always twitches around like his whole body got infested by fleas. Once I played with my friend and we were traveling to dodo island when a random sarco came out of nowhere and started biting my friend. I ordered my trike (Tina) to get rid of that thing. But Tina fell into the water and attracted megalodons. We didn’t have any cargo on that raft so we abandoned it immediately and I jumped onto Itchy and he was insane fast and swam away before the megolodons could react. Sadly for my friend and Tina that they died and my friend lost all his gear because he did not have one of these. Itchy was a real life saver for me. A good starter mount for starters.
They have a stealth feature that nothing will attack you while riding one. If you attack something, say, a megalodon, the meg will attack once, then leave you alone while you’re killing it. But if you dismount, then get back on, the stealth is disabled. WARNING! NEVER ATTACK CNIDARIA! If you do, you will die and lose your ichthy.
