No pls dont add them to eat bees yuck also bears dont do that!

Hey I have a super great idea I think the grizzly bear (the wild one) should break any bee nest or bee hive (because they do that in real life to get honey) so pls add that and then (only when they break it) it drops honeycomb and they eat it also when they break the bee nest the bees should get mad at the grizzly bear..

Can u change the grizzly and black bear model?
Log in to Reply
I think black and grizzly bears should attack Bees. Because in real life, they don't only like the honey, they also like the bee.

He means black and grizzlies naturally eats bees.

I can't tame polar bears or pandas! help i need a solution

Please read last changes! And pandas can't be tamed! I didn't say anything about how tame pandas, you can't tame pandas!

finally greater logic for bears (although, I thought that in this update you would add the ability to be able to win the trust of panda bears (and in the case of gaining the trust of an aggressive panda bear, eate just like foxes would defend you to be attacked, but would not follow the player)
finally the add-on deserves 5 stars
