"The 'Vibrant' bee has evolved a way to cool itself using water from the environment, allowing it to operate at a slightly higher metabolic rate than its 'Common' cousins."

The Vibrant Bee is a Tier 2 Social Bee species found by cross-breeding.

Like the Verdant Bee it has no major requirements and acts as one of the introductory species for learning how cross-breeding works.
