These little buggers are annoying until you realise that they are an easy and efficient way of getting early game simple kibble. So go out gather a few stacks of Mejos, put said Mejos into zero slot and let them steal it from you. Easy simple egg tames.
3 Females and one Male should be a good starting amount.
These guys are awesome! Here are 2 pego stories once I stole a ramshackle pistol from my rival in an official server his name was YesImAPro and I caged him, and once I was in a server with 23 in my base with 2 on aggressive he took something from the raider and the guy hit it so the rest started attacking him XDD I won
Great companion. Not much use in single player or pve but essential in pvp or pvx. For example, imagine a situation where you just snuck out a wooden cage in another tribe’s base and you find a wild pego and some bushes around you. Gather the berries, tame it up, make it steal a weapon and BAM! You got out of there.
Have a chamber surrounding important rooms in your base filled with narc traps, bear traps, dimorphodons, troodons, and these little guys. The traps will either trap/KO raiders, the troodons will tranq them, the dimos will kill them, and the pegomastxs will disarm them. This has defended me from 10+ attempted raids
