The ovis is a sheep-like creature that many survivors find useful in farming. It can be found in the grasslands. While rare, it can be tamed simply by feeding it one Sweet Vegetable Cake. This sheep can be sheered with Scissors to obtain Wool, or killed to obtain Mutton. While the ovis can be mounted, it is not an ideal mount for transport and provides very little use once mounted, other than its ability to climb up steep inclines.— Smallfoot
You find them (most often) up in the north biome, at the blue obelisk. As of now, they need to be born on a ceiling (One tile above where you want them), so they will not fall into the water under the map or other unaccessible places, warning, with this method they will still fall through the ceiling, but they will fall onto the foundation underneath, allowing you to claim them there. Another warning, The baby ovis needs to be claimed immediately, or else it will die of starvation, it will also have abnormally low weight, so be sure to feed it very often.
Very rare to come across upon in some maps, so when u do don’t hesitate to either mark the spot or tame it. ONLY GO LOOKING FOR IT (ASE), IF U HAVE VEGGIE CAKES. In asa about the same but hope ur lucky and they have babies. If they do start breeding, and get a lot of them for more. That way you’ll always have a lot of mutton. Never run out and one of the best taming foods besides kibble. Tame and reproduce don’t go killing it unless u really need it!!! Avoid killing it until u have many others to replace the one u just slaughtered. Great source of mutton (taming), pelt for fur armor along with many other things, and just fun to have lots of sheep to kill later. Go out and enjoy! Do remember higher the lvl the more veggie cakes they’ll need for they DO NOT TAKE KIBBLE, MEAT OR VEGGIES LIKE OTHER TAMES. :)
On island, the best way to find ovis is to take some veggie cake in your own inventory, Dino’s will eat veggie cake in their inventory, and a large carnivore Dino or Therizinosaur into the arctic and eat everything in sight. Don’t spare anything that moves. Even eat the trees (so you can see better). When stuff starts to spawn back, ovis will spawn with them. Keep an eye out, because they live mere minutes before stuff will eat them. Tame it and cryo it like your life depends on it. Have had several die in the moments between taming them and pulling out a cryopod, one with wolves, one died by Argy. Be FAST!
Heres a Tip: Tame A Berry Collector (P.s Tame a horse or beaver) If your going to be breeding and raising Since THE BABIES WILL MILK YOU DRY OF BERRIES unless you boosted Aging otherwise you will just need 1-3 stacks (Just a reminder that im sure on how much stacks are needed) Hoped this helped
