Another species of Bees appears in Super Mario Galaxy. These Bees are different from the ones encountered in Super Mario Sunshine in that they are the same size as Mario, and are capable of conversing with him. These Bees are also friendly to Mario, and serve the Queen Bee. In addition, the Bee Mushroom makes its first appearance in this game, which allows Mario to transform into Bee Mario. In this form, Mario is able to flutter through the air for a brief period of time, and also stick to and climb Honeycomb Walls.
