ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Very similar to a beaver. I like to think of them as desert beavers. They act as a smithy and have 1/5 of weight of wood on vanilla and 1/10 weight with stack mods. They also have reduced weight for thatch. They have a very quick attack so can be used as attack mounts, speed of attack similar to raptor. However, the spines aren't that good, although dealing torpor, do little damage and are a HUGE drain on stamina

I have 12 on platforms 4 pillars high scattered around my base. I have an issuse with dino spawns in the base. So they act as a long range needle launcher. Weigh down with sand because its weight isnt affected by the dragons buff. Set all to long range aggressive and u have a protected base. Add a few plant X for added assurance. I no longer have spawn problems. Found a ready to tame terror bird today too pretty neat.
