I spent an hour looking for them on ground in the red woods but I didnt realize they mostly spawn in the water so bring your snow owl to find the most and check the lakes, up vote so people don't suffer like I did.
These guys seem useless at first, but are great tames! They’re found on two maps, in one biome for each map. They’re found on gen 2 and lost island, eden biome on gen 2 and on lost island, the grass platoi areas.
They lay eggs of different qualities, from basic to exceptional! This allows for great and easy taming! They are also the first genderless BUT breed-able creatures, thus being extremely unique! They are mammals, thus they breed with a gestation period after the breeding! They are great tames and can be used for many things! They are the fastest creature you can get on lost island, making it easy to get wyvern eggs if the wyverns are distracted! The taming is pretty simple thankfully! Best way to tame them, is by netting them and then building a trap around them, then nocking them out. They’re saddle is easy to craft and unlocked early, thus this can be a very good early tame! To end this of, I’d like to tell you all that this creature is based of a flying squirrel and a platypus! For now, hope your ride with the colony ship stays steady! And remember! Keep surviving! And for one of these touching on the other genesis creatures, just let me know, by taking this to ten ups!
You dont need to fully trap the maewing. Just arrange billboard in a v and eat a rare flower. They will stay biting the billboards and if the try to flee the billboards block the jump so that you can get the last hits in.
