While taming dinosaurs to do your bidding is a feature attraction of ARK: Survival Evolved, there are certainly many other types of animals willing to partner up with ambitious humans. One of these is the Mesopithecus, a small monkey that can be a big help.
Let’s get this out of the way right now: The monkey can and will fling poo at your enemies (hey, better them than you, right?). But it also wears a cute hat, harvests plants, and can be flung over walls to unlock doors from the inside, so concerns over hygiene might be forgiven.
You can check out the Mesopithecus in its short spotlight video after the break.
