If foung a pego. Don't go to pego, run of the pego. Run, the pegomastax he go steal you items. He opens you inventory and pick the item he the pego wants to steal. Before of steal your item, the pego will run.
Ok so I’ve herd people getting really pissed of by these things because they have stolen their stuff and they couldn’t find them so they lost their good items but their is actually a really easy way to find them. You are probably familiar with these things taming method you let them steal berries from you and than they tame. because of this method when they steal something from you the game thinks you are trying to tame them. So hypothetically speaking of the game thinks your trying to tame them you could use the taming tracker to pinpoint their exact location from all the way across the map and because their taming they won’t despawn (do keep in mind that they still are wild so if a Dino wipe happens they will despawn) please up if this helps
Really weird thing i noticed.. When i was playing ark and started new save, i noticed pegomastax ran into me, and boom. He is already tamed, he just normally ran into me and i had him already tamed and there was text: NAME YOUR PEGOMASTAX. Can someone tell me how? Because i had nothing in my inventory. Okay maybe stone items and spoiled meat but this was weird.. Maybe its bug or theres a way to tame him like this
