There exist many species of fauna (animals / fish) that can either be useful, useless or aggressive whilst alive. However, all fauna are useful when dead as they can be cooked by a Chef, sold by Cargo or recycled into biomass by Medical.
Note that when sold, the value of a corpse is sometimes more valuable than when cooked. e.g. a mouse corpse is ~200 whilst a cooked object is ~50.
This is an incomplete list of fauna you may encounter on the station or in space. Note that each creature has its own walk speed, damage, durability, air requirements and temperature tolerance. For example:
- a mouse takes less damage than a space carp
- a penguin can live in a fridge whilst a cow may die
- a duck will die if there's no air whilst a space carp thrives in the vacuum of space.
