In Smalland, players can tame some of the animals they come across in the wild as pets. So how do you tame animals in Smalland, and which creatures can you tame? Here we'll answer these questions and more so that you can have a pet to call your own and master taming in Smalland.

How to Tame Animals in Smalland

Smalland Taming Generally, taming a creature in Smalland is a relatively straightforward process. But it’s important to note that players can only tame a handful of animals in the game at the time of writing. After crafting the taming item (which is individual to each tamable creature, more on this below), tame your target by following these steps:
  1. Attack the animal until you can get its health to 50% or less.
  2. Press “F” on your keyboard to tame it.
You’ll know if you’re successful if the creature stops being aggressive. The only exception is the ladybug, which continues to be docile while in combat, but will stop running away once tamed. DON’T MISS IT: Sons of the Forest Weapons Tier List: Ranking the Best Melee and Ranged Weapons

All Tamable Animals in Smalland & Requirements

Smalland Tame Animals As mentioned earlier, players can only tame a few animals in Smalland, and each animal has a unique set of required items to tame them. Those creatures, along with their taming items, are:
  • Damselfly
    • Damselfly Treat: 3x Firefly Juice, 2x Seed Oil, and 1x Petal
  • Gecko
    • Gecko Treat: 2x Ant Head, 2x Bee Head, 2x Seed Oil, and 1x Petal
  • Grasshopper
    • Grasshopper Treat: 3x Insect Egg, 2x Seed Oil, and 1x Petal
  • Ladybug
    • Ladybug Travel Kit: 3x Edible Mushroom, 5x Fiber, and 2x Nectar
  • Wolf Spider
    • Wolf Spider Treat: 3x Insect Wings, 2x Seed Oil, 2x Spider Eye, 1x Grasshopper Leg, and 1x Petal
Aside from being a cute pet, each critter that you tame has a unique benefit. For instance, a ladybug provides additional storage. On the other hand, geckos and their sticky feet help you climb vertical surfaces, such as cliff edges and tree barks.

Additional Tips & Tricks for Taming in Smalland

Smalland Taming Tips and Tricks Despite its straightforwardness, taming in Smalland often has more than meets the eye (or antenna). So, here are some tips, tricks, and additional information you may need to help you get the hang of taming creatures in this game:
  • Players can only have one active animal at any given time. That means changing your current pet requires you to either release or kill it.
  • The pet can run from danger. One example is the gecko, wherein it’ll escape from harm if it senses your opponents to be stronger than it or you.
  • Moving too much can irritate your pet. Avoiding this warning sign can anger your pet, which may eventually lead to it becoming free.
  • Use the pet whistle item if you lost sight of your pet. Doing so will make the creature come scurrying back to you.
  • Throw food to your pets to heal them. Remember, your tamed creatures can still die from enemy attacks.
