These dudes are quite useful. But even more useful in multiplayer. If you manage to get them inside a base they can unlock doors during raids. And they can throw poop! You can also equip them with hats which looks better on them than hoomans.
I was trying to tame a raptor and my mess was a 154 I knocked it out than a pack cam I was like WTH then meso threw poop at them and saved me best shoulder pet but my otter Oliver died to an alpha raptor🦧🦧☠️🐵🐵🐵🙊🙊
I just tested this, but if you set them on wandering and throw them at a patch of bushes/bamboo shoots or whatever, they can actually gather a decent quantity of berries and seeds. Just be sure to clean their inventory so they can continue and then pick them up and throw them at a new patch of shrubs! Simple as that! Hopefully people find this useful
