野外的巨蜂群并不会离开它们在岩壁上红杉树上所筑蜂巢太远。经常可以在蜂巢周围发现组成小组的工蜂，但是想观察蜂后，则需要破开蜂巢。 凭经验而言，这并不是一个令人兴奋的任务，因为那些不可驯化的工蜂们极具领地意识。事后才觉得我本该看到这一点。 一定要小心：巨蜂的针刺会显著地将骚扰它们的动物给削弱，因为它们的蛰针不具倒刺，所以它们可以多次使用而不担心自己的蛰针脱落。
Common name: Giant Bee
Species: Apis lithohermaea
Time: Middle Miocene
In the wild, Apis lithohermea drones never stray far from their nests, which they build high in the Island's redwood trees or rocky cliffsides. Apis drones can be seen swarming around the nest in groups, but to get a look at the queen, one would need to crack open the nest itself. Speaking from experience, this is not a pleasant task, as Apis drones are quite territorial. Take caution: Apis' stings will weaken their victim, and because its stinger is not barbed, Apis can sting multiple times without fear of its stinger being ripped out.
A tamed Apis Queen will lay new drone eggs and construct a nest that survivors can farm for honey, so long as they remember to wear a ghillie suit. Said honey is not only sweet and delicious but laced with strong scents that land mammals find irresistible. Many hunters use it to bait their traps. Apis drones will also follow their queen into battle, so they can be used for self-defense in a pinch.
