This mod adds several imaginary animals to populate your worlds and make the wildlife a bit more varied and interesting, especially from biome to biome.

These range from oversized beetles to big furry lizards, with unique models and sounds. Each of them spawn in different biome types, making each biome feel a little bit more unique.

Currently, all animals can be bred like farm animals and drop meat when killed. Some of them can even be brushed using a new tool (the Brush) to get some bonus resources.

All spawn rates are fully configurable in 1.12.2.

Current animals

Lovely Cicaptera Lovely Cicapteras reside in flowery biomes (Sunflower Plains and Flower Forests) or magical ones. While their husks are a good source of pink dye, alive they can produce Aphrodite Essence over time. In 1.14 this can be used on any animal to make it instantly fall in love. In 1.12 this can be used to brew potions that accelerate animal breeding. Breed them with Sugar.

Krill Krills are crustaceans that wander around beaches. While they have little meat under their shells, they will occasionally forage sandy blocks they're standing on. Most of the time they will find sticks or flint, but sometimes they can get lucky and hit some much more precious materials. Breed with any vanilla seeds.

Plumper Plumpers are fat seal-like animals that hang around in beaches. Their blubber can be used as a weak fuel source, or used as a substitute for Tallow (Rustic, Better With Mods, Quark), Wax (Rustic) or Pressed Wax (Pam's Harvestcraft). Breed with any fish (raw or cooked).

Vrontausaurus Vrontausauruses are the biggest furzards. They live in mountains and can generate static electricity with their fur, which can shock you if you're brushing one. Don't attack them, as they will fight back and they bite a lot. You can brush them to shed fur. Breed with pork, beef or mutton (raw or cooked) while it's raining.

Dusk Lurker Dusk Lurkers are smaller and shier furzards that live in forests. They don't like being approached without food but will stare at nearby players with their glowing eyes. Their fur makes a thick, black dust that can be brushed off, making them a good source of black dye. Breed with rabbit or cicaptera (raw or cooked) during the night.

Yaga Hog Yaga Hogs are a rare breed of pigs that thrive in swamps. Unlike their pinkier cousins, they will emit a cloud of poison when struck as a mean of defense, so try to kill them from a distance. The dirt on their back can be brushed off. Breed with bread.

Azure Cicaptera Azure Cicapteras live in plains and are recognizable by their blue shell. Their husks are a good substitute for lapis lazuli based dyes (blue) for decorative purposes. Breed with any vanilla seeds.

Verdant Cicaptera Verdant Cicapteras live in forests and have a dark green shell. Their husks can be used as a good substitue for cactus based dyes (green). Breed with apples.

Crimson Cicaptera Crimson Cicapteras live in hot biomes and are recognizable by their signature red shell. Unlike other cicapteras they will fight back if threatened, ramming their attacker at great speed. Their husks are a good, if not dangerous, source of red dye. Breed with cactus.

Sandy Cicaptera Sandy Cicapteras are most commonly found in deserts. Their sand colored shells can make them hard to spot, and are a good source of yellow dye. Breed with cactus.

Wintry Cicaptera Wintry Cicapteras are found in snowy biomes, where their white shells allow them to remain unseen. Their husks are an excellent source of white dye, much less dangerous than hunting skeletons. Breed with any vanilla seeds.
