Giant Bee-Eaters live on Berserker Island. They appear to be large, but relatively harmless nocturnal insectivores.
Hiccup, while riding his Windwalker, nearly fly into one's gaping mouth when looking for Fishlegs on Berserker Island.
Traits and Abilities
Giant Bee-Eaters look very much like deep sea Angler fish. They have a huge maw to engulf bugs with, and a long dangling lure with a glowing tip sprouting from their noses. They can reach in excess of 50 feet long. Though their diet consists primarily of bugs, they will willingly ingest and other creature that gets trapped in their mouths as they float over the forests.
To note: the info box in "How to Break a Dragon's Heart" indicates they are vegetarian, but this is not accurate since they eat mostly bees and other insects.
