    Why can’t i tame all of the bears I would really like if you update it so we can tame all of the bear thanks

  2. Guest-3232957562 says:

    I’m getting no textures on the bears.

  3. Guest-4152397832 says:

    im confused, i cant tame ANY of the bears with cookies… but i can tame the gray bears with cod….

  4. Guest-7916966266 says:

    Pls make koala bear

  5. Guest-3327627449 says:

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

  6. Guest-5517822046 says:

    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..

  7. Guest-4507201489 says:

    Can u change the grizzly and black bear model?

  8. Nobody says:

    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.

  9. Faye Dobson says:

    I can’t tame any of the bears!!! Help me!

  10. Jennie says:

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

  11. ALEXYSSSJ4 says:

    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

  12. Chris says:

    Dude it’s a good add-on but it get broken when i apply a texture pack or any other add-ons like other pets addons or even better graphics add-ons can you fix it?

  13. Download is broken, what a shame.
    You could also just have a direct download like I have on my “add-ons” that everyone critizes and say they are just texture packs which is true but I post them under add-ons because this is the type of thing people that search for add-ons would want and they are less likely to look in resource packs.

    The download is broken.

  15. Nodded Survival Lover says:

  25. Arthur 999 says:

    hello i have a suggestion of addon more minecraft animal heads and monsters please do that -_-

  26. ALEXYSSSJ4 says:

    hello good add-on but a detail (could make grizlly bears smaller than polar bears, you will see in real life the type of bear bigger and stronger of all is the polar bear not the grizlly bear so I ask you to do the grizzly nas small bear or make the largest polar bear) greetings from venezuela

  27. Azure says:

    Hello! I really like the add-on but I have an idea for the grizzly bear.
    I think it should have an behaviour example. When it eats honey it should have honey on thier hands. And thier mouth. I think it would be cute..

  28. Josesssj5 says:

    hello incredible add-on, but one detail (brown bears are smaller than polar bears in the real vide, you should make brown bears smaller or make polar bears even bigger) greetins from Venezuela
