    Pretty good mod, I would like to suggest that you add
    1. A gnome friend on your back, kinda like the Gnome gun, or base it on a Gnome from Gravity Falls
    2. Flowey, from Undertale
    3. A sloth, with it's arms draped over your shoulders, holding it's legs like it's a giant, lazy, living backpack.

    I like the idea, many cute animals. However, I feel that they are always way too close to you and the turtle does this weird thing where he moves a bit forward and then backwards. I also think it would be better if this mod was a stand-alone mod because the other mod that it requires is quite large and makes Starbound take longer to launch.

      They are close to char because there is limited frame space they can be put in. Otherwise animals could not be seen whole. And yes, there is this thing with turtle, it is going back to first frame at the end of moving.
      I will think about adding shop into this mod for animals and rest to make it standalone.
