Herbivores need to eat plants to survive. Despite not being designed for combat, they more often have surprisingly high health pools. They can output fairly decent damage if they need to defend themselves. And a high amount of stamina to run away if needed. Unlike Carnivores these animals cannot eat meat. Herbivore herds are often used to defend themselves together, if a roaming Carnivore gets too close or decides that a member of the herd will make a good meal.
