Each level will increase your chance to successfully tame an animal by 10% (base without the Hunting skill is 50%) with the Animal Taming Trap.
At higher levels, you will be able to harvest more meat and skins from the animals you kill.
Level 1: able to tame Rats or wolves
Level 2: able to tame Bears and Deers
Level 4: able to tame Giant Beetles, Moths, and Giant Frogs
When you tame an animal, your current pet will be set free.
