Banguela is a fictional species of pterosaur reptile in Additional Creatures.


Synopsis

Banguela is a strange pterosaur often found in forested areas. A strong flier, Banguela uses it's tweezer-like beak for the unique purpose of feeding from bee hives. Rather than the insects, Banguela is more interested in the honey in the hives. Not only does it seem unphased by bees, but it's feeding habits are rather messy. This causes it to drop plentiful amounts of honey on the ground below. This catches the interest of Dire Bears and Segnosaurus, also avid honey eaters. However, with most hives out of reach, Banguela offers an opportunity. It appears that in exchange for providing food for Segnosaurus and Dire Bears, those two species in return help protect Banguela from threat. If a Banguela finds itself under attack, nearby Segnosaurus and Dire Bears are known to rush to its aid!

Tamed, survivors use Banguela to gather honey from higher-up hives, usually out of the reach of bears and Segnosaurus. Banguela, despite its size, also figures itself a shoulder pet, perching- or more or less, “piggybacking”- onto its owner's back with affection. Turns out this has an extremely effective use. Banguela can be used as a form of portable flier. Thrown from one's back, Banguela is fully capable of supporting a survivor latched onto it via grapple hook, and then being directed via whistling commands!
