    We have corpions and spiders, but let's add more potential tameables to the bug side of taming!

    Beetles could be an alternate tanking pet, having low health, high armor, and some knockdown as well.

    Something like this I think (expanded in size) fits the bill :)

    Wasps have this really mean vibe. Wouldn't hold one even if it was 1/20th of that size :eek:

    Yea, I mentioned giant beetles a long time ago in my low-hanging monsters thread, since there are Unity assets available for giant beetles.

    From my thread,
    "Something like this would be great in desert environments and in narrow cave tunnels. The model on the Unity store also includes wings and flying animations. It would have a thick outer chitinous shell that would give it good defenses, and in the animations it attacks upwards in a headbutt, and downward in a piercing attack. The headbutt could do good knockbacks, and piercing attack good knockdowns. When it has enough space to get in the air, flying could give it a good defensive advantage. This would make it strategically useful to lure it into narrower spaces. Certain attacks made when the beetle is in the air could also potentially damage its wings (disable them through a debuff) and force it to the ground. Potentially, it could also have a defensive move on the ground which would brace it for attacks, using its chitinous shell to absorb blows."
