Behavior/AI: Monkeys are skittish and will avoid players. They also avoid high drops and other things that would hurt them like lava, cacti, etc. They are passive.
Taming/abilities: Monkeys will approach you if you play coconut shells for them. Once they are close enough, feed them bananas until they become your faithful pet. Why would you want a pet monkey? Well,they're super-cute for starters. Also, monkeys are very clever and can help you find things. If you give a monkey an item, it will attempt to find that material elsewhere. Depending on the rarity of the material, the monkey doesn't always get things right. For example, giving it a flower will make a 100% chance of your companion finding that type of flower. Giving him (or her) a diamond gem will have a much larger margin of error (a bit more than half). When a monkey has found what it's looking for, it will jump up and down and hoot, triumphantly. If the monkey has found something underground, they will do a victory dance above it. Monkeys can go underwater and can be equipped with some sort of item to allow them to breathe underwater. Monkeys are great fruit gatherers. G-clicking (G is for gathering) a monkey then right clicking a tree will cause them to scurry up the tree (monkeys can climb vertical surfaces up to 10 blocks) and destroy a leaf block, collecting the corresponding fruit and tossing it to the player.
Healing/health: Monkeys can be healed with bananas (4 hearts), coconut water (3 hearts), or apples (2 hearts). Monkeys have 8 hearts of health and display their health with their tails.
i think instead of porcupines we should have hedgehogs. I actuly have one in real life, and they would be much better for taming. Taming a porcupine doesn't make much sence, taming a hedgehog does. I would still like porcupines in the game, just not tameable.
