As of April 2019, I’ve discovered a neat trick to tame these ugly rat things. Make a 2x2 box. I used fence foundations and one row of walls personally. Drop it in there and use amounts of 25 with mejoberries. When it grabs the first amount, whip it out of its hands. Also, body block it into a corner! The taming bar will NOT drop after it is whipped and body blocked in my personal experience! I’ve sucessfully tamed five quickly with this weird method. The ugly rat breeding line has officially begun!
