Taming Calculator

To tame an otter, kill some fish, approach the otter, and then use the action button to feed the fish to it. Level of fish does not impact taming. The Sabertooth Salmon is by far the most effective fish, followed by the Piranha and the Coelacanth. Please ignore timing and effectiveness as calculations are not yet complete.
