Tamed Otters do not eat regular meat, only fish meat. My otter was refusing to eat even though she had plenty of meat in her inventory and plenty of meat in a nearby trough. To remedy this, I tried multiple things; moving the trough closer, giving her more meat, and even force feeding her. She would not gain hunger with regular meat. The moment I got fish meat, she ate. I'm not sure if they can eat other types of meats like mutton though.
Took a run though the swamp. I got bitten by a titanaboa. I died, respawned and saw, you otter (lvl 3) killed a titanaboa (lvl 30). Do not underestimate. Unfortunately, 2 seconds later I see, your otter (lvl 3) was killed by a titanaboa (lvl 10) one up for my harry otter?
They can carry multiple artifacts, even on official, and provide hypothermic insulation against the cold. Literally a must have for running artifacts if you plan to spam run boss fights for element. 10/10 would smash again.
Mobile player, I was doing dodo hunt (kill 250 dodos. Not as easy as it sounds) with my Griffin and my otter, and my otter FELL OFF MY SHOULDER and landed in water full of mega. Then I start getting messages, "your Harry otter (otter lvl 57) killed a megalodon (lvl 30)" I got at least 5 of these. Go OTTERS!
