Dromedary

Dromedary

A large land mammal adapted to arid environments. Domesticated since ancient times, its wool and leather are both exceptionally good at insulating against the desert heat, and its milk is quite nourishing. It can be used as a pack animal and mount, but its bouncing gait makes it slower to ride than a horse.
By storing water in its large humps and reclaiming moisture from its breath as it exhales, it can go weeks without drinking.
When in a caravan, people can ride dromedaries to increase the caravan's speed.

Desert-dwelling, shrub-eating quadrupeds, dromedaries are one-humped camels. They can often be found in small herds. When enraged, they can melee and can become somewhat dangerous, comparable to deer.

These creatures can be hunted and butchered by colonists for a plentiful supply of meat. This is especially valuable, considering the scarcity of food in their native desert environment.

They also provide a large quantity of leather compared to other creatures that spawn in the same biomes, making them useful for a crafting-based economy. Their leather is a sandy brown color.

A Dromedary will also increase the carrying capacity of any caravan it's part of by 73.5 kg making them a good pack animal.

Taming

Dromedaries are notable for requiring no minimum skill level to tame. They can be found in arid shrublands, deserts, and extreme deserts.

Production

Handlers are required to harvest resources from animals.

Female dromedaries can be milked once every 2 days, producing 18 milk.

Yaks are competitive and choosing between them is more of a matter of preference. They are both pack animals that produce milk but yaks produce 22% more milk on average, while dromedaries allow riders to speed up caravans. They are otherwise very similar - carrying the same load and eating the same amount.

See Animal Products for more details on how much each type of animal produces. See Pack animal for more comparisons on pack animals.

Analysis

Dromedaries provide Milk 10.47 milk per day per nutrition consumed, the least of all milk producing animals.

While dromedaries produce the least milk per nutrition consumed; Dromedaries produce milk, are pack animals, and are rideable which is a combo that is unique to Dromedaries. Their leather, camelhide, is also tied for the second best textile in the game in terms of heat insulation, making Dromedaries an all purpose animal ideal for surviving in desert climates.
