Can babies die of parasites?

Postby hoopyscoop » Fri Apr 26, 2013 7:58 pm

Well, I'm playing WEO right now, and one of my babies got parasites, and of course their little icon is red, I'm just wondering if parasites can kill young?

I'm not sure... If i w ere to base it off real life i would say yes. After all young animals may not have as strong of immune systems as adult ones. So getting ill or have in a nest loaded with parrisites might be dangerous. As for the weo game to tell the truth i'm not sure if this comes into play but it might.

My guess is that parasites in-game are another cause for your children to become sick. So I don't think it kills your child directly but it can lead to sickness.
I have yet to see a case of when parasites kills an animal, but maybe I can experiment a little and test it out.

Thanks for your help, I never really tested it because I was trying to get as high a score as possible.

I was able to get an unexpected experiment. I guess my coyote mate glitched a bit while I was off hunting with the pack and had trouble remembering to shake the nest. It seems like the pups get dirty much faster than those whom don't get parasites. If you don't clean them, they'll obviously get too dirty and thus sick from it. I think they get dirty twice as fast as normally. So yeah, keep your nest clean and if your pup gets parasites, just clean it a bit more often than the rest. (:
Another tip for those whom may not know, you can clean the nest sometimes before the parasites are even visibly apparent.

Thanks! I'll keep that in mind. :)
