When I first started the game, I found one of these beauties. I immediately tamed it as fast as I could, and once he was tamed, I saw a fire in its eyes. I named him Steven. Steven has always been there for me. He gathers stuff for me, helps me kill and fend off creatures from my base, and has had a family with his wife Theresa. He now has three Children, Larry, Kevin, and Carmen. I tamed Steven when he was only a level 4, and I was a level 8. I’m so glad to have found him and we can grow old together. I’m now level 57 and He’s level 68. We’ve had a great life together.

A swarm of these in the water teams up AMAZINGLY with a Baryonyx! Use the stun attack on Alpha Sharks or Alpha Carno and watch as your team of Tuxedo hitmen nips them into a surprised-looking skeleton. Its hilarious.
Tame a bunch and make a penguin farm for poly. Nine females to one male works great. Set up a bunch of ACs and have them on wander when the babies hatch club them. Free poly within the comfort of your own base!
So I tamed two of them a Male, and Female pair, I didn’t know what to do with them until my friend said they’re good for a Polymer farm, just have 1 Male, and 5+ Females, and have a Carnivore aggressive, and it’ll get the Polymers for you.
These birds make a very good tame for a variety of reasons:
Firstly, as combat pets: working similar to a dimorphodon but underwater, capable of taking down even the largest creatures in a swarm, and also being able to wear hats for extra protection.
Secondly, as egg animals: their egg is as light as a dodo egg but slightly better food, and they're much easier to find than dodos in the snow.
Thirdly, as heating: they are brilliantly insulated to the point that they actually overheat even in their snowy home and radiate warmth, useful for keeping warm or hatching eggs.
Fourthly, as companions: they make good pets due to their appearance and ability to wear various hats
-Once tamed the Kairuku acts as a mobile heater. It adds 35 to your hypothermic insulation (your how cold you are stat) the more Kairuku you have compounds their effectiveness.( the further away from the penguin the less effective it is)
-Can be used for breeding so you don't have to waste mats on Air Conditioners
