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!
I was just collecting my stuff from my body and just got the message saying I tamed this thing. For the next hour I had no idea what until I found out it just nicked the berry's in my last slot I was gonna use for something else. He tamed himself but Gollum now sits looking over my shoulder.
literally bought console ark after playing mobile ark for ages, this little sh it came and robbed me of my tranq arrows, then, had the audacity to come and tame itself on me after taking my 20 mejoberries, didn’t want this pet but I took it home, died 20 seconds later to a bird that picked it up and ate it, still don’t know why or how but I also don’t care
