Love the addon but i guess i'm a sucker for any addon that adds arachnids into the game, on a side note would it be possible to make the scorpions tamable but difficult to tame.

REALLY like the butterflies! Wishing for dragonflies and ladybugs, if possible. Thank you! Also, the mantis shows up a blank square in my inventory and does not spawn. I'm using 1.17.34 Thanks!
