If you need honey the bear is for you! I got one for this purpose alone. The bees will not knock you off the bear nor will they attack it at all so he's great for honey collecting. Make sure he dont reat it all on the way back!!!
Faster than a giga, strong as a rex, with some levels can get to 1k carry, can gather and eat both berries and meat,can even gather fiber, if you tame a high level one you have a super gathering and combat mount. Unmatched in utility.
A high level can easily take down Alpha Carno's. It's perfect for taming other animals since it can collect both berries and prime meat. It can go through the central cave and is a highly speedy mount with good carry weight. It's also cuddly.
