Harking back to our past news coverage
of the very immature Mesopithecus from ARK: Survival Evolved
, I would like to start off by saying that in my personal opinion, this is not a very classy monkey.
He may be cute, he may be nimble and though you will have the ability to carry him on your shoulder; to quote the developers, he can "act as a mobile feces-flinging turret", and that is just not how a proper monkey should act. Sure, you'll be able to toss him over enemy walls and have him unlock small doors; and even to his credit, he will automatically harvest nearby plants on his own for you, but the poop-flinging is something that an uncivilized zoo animal would do.
I do, however, like the fact that you will be able to dress up this primitive primate from your hat collection, because a silly monkey deserves a silly hat. For more spec details on the Mesopithecus, you can check out the artwork image below:
