Taming Dung Beetle

To begin the taming process you must carefully approach the creature and start feeding it. It's recommended to lure the creature into a safe spot - during the taming process it can move around and venture into a dangerous zone. Repeat the feeding process once it becomes available and continue doing so until the creature is tamed.
