Take Care when searching with flying Mounts for Ovis. They can throw you Off and Paralyse your bird for several seconds. In combination with Packs of wolves this can be your and the birds Ende. I am speaking of experience.
When they are Buried you May See a small mountain.
If your a low level and you know that you will be raided from others in the same position tame one of these dirt kittens to use as a "important item chest" if you are afraid it will be found don't be you are the only one that can see the dirt mound and they use less food while underground
PRO TIP! When hunting for one of these make sure the creature u are riding on has its follow distance set to low so when u get knocked off you can get straight back on asap. If you do not have this setting enabled you will get knocked off and if your using a bird you will NOT be able to reach your bird when getting attacked usually leading to death.
