Sky Bison are tamable and rideable mobs, found in mountain-like biomes, capable of flying. They are usually flying and only come down to the ground to eat once in a while, which makes it hard to tame them.

Taming[edit | edit source]

To tame a Sky Bison, you should hold out wheat or hay bales. Nearby flying bison will come towards you, but only from a short range.

Feed the bison food until white smoke appears. Then, feed the bison an apple to tame it.

You can't ride a bison until it has reached a mature age and you put a saddle on it.

Sky Bison can breed but they will do it automatically. They can only breed a few times, but their children cannot breed.

Mounting[edit | edit source]

To be able to ride your bison you need to equip it with a bison saddle. There are four tiers of saddles, each one allowing more people to mount the mob. Equipping saddles increase their defense as well. The tiers are:

  • Basic Saddle (1 player can mount)
  • Sturdy Saddle (2 players can mount)
  • Studded Saddle (4 players can mount)
  • Majestic Saddle (6 players can mount)

Once the saddle is equipped, press left-click to ride it. To go up, look down and press S (reverse)

Inventory[edit | edit source]

Sky bison can hold up to 27 slots, depending on their age.

To access their inventory you can: shift + left-click or right-click the bison with a chest. Alternatively, press E while riding the bison also works.

Protection[edit | edit source]

Sky Bisons can be equipped with armor to protect them from harm. Useful if you use them to engage in combat. Even though saddles add a few armor points, the armor is the best way to protect your bison. There are four types of armor:

  • Woven Armor (8 armor points)
  • Chain Armor (16 armor points)
  • Wrought Armor (20 armor points)
  • Legendary Armor (26 armor points)

Transferring[edit | edit source]

To transfer ownership of a bison, first bind a bison whistle by shift-clicking on it. Then, give the whistle to your friend and have him/her use it.

A chat message will appear to confirm transferring the bison. Press L on your keyboard (can be changed) to confirm the bison transfer.
