Abilities or stats are traits of creatures determined by their genes. The abilities are Strength, Speed, Gathering, Digging, Crushing, Fishing, Swimming, Underwater Breathing, Underwater Gathering, Venomous, Poisonous, Spikyness, Sight, Hearing, Smelling, Fertility, Cold Resistance and Heat Resistance.
