Alphabeaver

A large beaver derivative genetically engineered to harvest wood with machine-like efficiency. In the absence of specialized feed, these animals will enter a manic state that compels them to eat trees whole.

Instead of silently spawning as other animals do, Alphabeavers appear in a group only when the Alphabeavers event triggers. They have a muffalo's tolerance to cold and an iguana's tolerance to heat, so they will likely survive in whatever biome they spawn in. Their hunger bar depletes so rapidly that they must eat at a near constant rate - and they eat nothing but trees, including any you are farming. Given time, they will most likely strip the entire region of trees. If your colony has no need for wood, then alphabeavers pose no threat and can be ignored. A player with a need for lumber will usually choose to eliminate the threat by hunting them.

Alphabeavers will not attack your structures (although it may be possible if driven mad by a psychic drone), so you may construct walls to resolve the issue. If the alphabeavers are located behind a chokepoint you may choose to wall it off to confine them. This confinement denies them access to most trees on the map and they will soon leave the map or die of starvation. If you have an enclosed base with a sufficient supply of trees within the confines you can ignore the alphabeavers, unless they exploit an open door and slip inside. If slain, they can be butchered for 72 alphabeaver meat and 16 beaverskin.

Taming

Alphabeavers can either be bought from a trader or appear on your map in an event.


Training

Alphabeavers can be trained as follows:

Obedience:  Check.png
Release:  Check.png
Rescue:  Ex.png
Haul:  Ex.png

Contrary to what one may think, Alphabeavers can't be trained (at least yet) to harvest trees around the map for wood.
