Very useful! Easiest thing to knock out and tame, they act differently depending on the future weather (I.E. digging at the ground means a heatwave, barking/chirping is a sandstorm, growling w/ fluffy tail is a thunderstorm, and hugging their tail means good ole rain), their inventory weighs half when they're being carried, and most importantly, they look cute af when wearing hats.
They are always a good help when hatching wyvern eggs they tell you when the elecritacil storms near so you can put them in your invintory and defend your base from enemys because all your turrents will be out
They halve the weight of whatever you put on them, and can be carried themselves. Makes them extremely useful for getting a lot of metal on one trip. Be sure to upgrade their carrying weight to allow for more!
Fun fact.. Bola does work. My friend was lagging kinda bad, so i used a bola as a joke, but it actually got restrained. Good for if you need to run to get food for the tame.(only lasts a little while and seemingly everything wnjoys a free meal, so carry berries and seeds on you)
Warns you what storm is coming, and when. If it makes a chirping kinda noise to the sky, it's a sandstorm. If it tries to bury it's head in the ground and shakes it's head, it's a superheat. If it shakes it's tail and growls, lightning storm.
