  • The higher the hunger rate, the more the animal eats, Be careful about bringing many animals or large animals such as Elephants on long winter trips when it is too cold for them to graze.
  • All of the current pack animals in the game are herbivorous.
  • The more weight you add to the caravan, the slower it'll move.
  • You need to take into account the distance you're going, and the return trip's length and bring food accordingly for your colonists and animals.
  • Horses offer the fastest speed as well as boasting 70kg of weight limit as well as only 1.36 hunger rate, arguably making them the best pack animal.
