Reuse an Animal Multiple Tines in a Chao Garden
While holding your animal, go as close to your chao as possible without giving it to the chao. Then simply drop the animal in front of your Chao. If done correctly the chao will give the same animation as if you handed the animal to the chao, only you can pick the animal up again. This can also be done with chaos drives.
