The Quetzal is a behemoth of a creature with base stats that top the charts (health, stamina, weight, and torpor). The Quetzal's platform saddle and ability to regain stamina when paused in mid-air (dismounted) make it an excellent choice for a mobile air base or even a caravan for transporting and gathering metal and other supplies on harder to reach areas. While its melee strength isn't as high as some might expect, its health and ability to carry weapons make it suitable to use as a war bird. Its preference for Rex Kibble make it difficult to tame, and even more so difficult to knock out in the air.
