This guy is my favorite dino to start. It can farm LOTS of fiber, chitin, berries, rare mushrooms, rare flowers, polymer, etc. And it has a considerably good melee and health. But people don't see its value just because its a big coward iguana... Lmao. But for real, they're really one of the best dinos to get at the beginning, if not the best. Give this an up to let people know.
If you want to use these to collect fiber on mobile you need to set them to wander and use the whistle to get them to stop following you. I personally let my Moschop out of my base to wander and collect fiber while I stay near it collecting stone and wood. They will also occasionally take down trees for you and eat corpses.
Moschops is literally one of the best chitin and polymer farmers, if not the best. Kill trilobites with it and you'll see how much chitin it gets (and a bit of oil and pearls too). I spent the last hour killing trilobites with Potato (my Moschops) and got two chests full of chitin. Apparently people don't know this so give it an up to let everyone know.
Moschops Cibumutante is one of the many reminders that this Island is full of surprises that simply make no sense given it’s strength compared to behavior.
Despite having a jaw with enough crushing power to break a bone, Moschops Cibumutante is unusually shy when it comes to fighting, and will startle and flee if attacked. It seems to perceive survivors stealing the eggs as a direct attack, as it will flee if this occurs.
Rather, Moschops Cibumutante is far more passive and friendly towards survivors and all other animals, even appearing oblivious towards predators until provoked by them, and will react to humans in a friendly manner.
Moschops Cibumutante is easy to tame and is used for the very purpose of gathering berries and wood (it’s jaw can penetrate trees), and is also tamed as a pet equally often. Just remember, it is reluctant to fight and sometimes displays “coward” behaviors, and it’s personality has been described as “lazy”.
