Taxonomy

Akura Vashimu are Scorpion-like Carapaceon with a crystal studded tail. Akura Vashimu only one known relative, Akura Jebia.

Habitat Range

Akura Vashimu can be found inhabiting Boreal Forests in the far north to the Desert, Moonlands, and Swamp.

Ecological Niche

Akura Vashimu are large and powerful enough to be top predators in the Desert. Armed with powerful grasping claws and a mace-like crystal tail, Akura Vashimu can easily kill their prey in one strike whether it be an ApcerosRemobraAptonoth, or even Gendrome. Akura Vashimu have to coexist with other large predators in their environment such as Tigrex, Copper Blangonga, Cephadrome, Kuarusepusu, Unknown (Black Flying Wyvern), some Elder Dragons, and its relative, Akura Jebia. The biggest threat to an Akura Vashimu in the Desert is the Flying Wyvern, Odibatorasu. Odibatorasu have been seen killing and devouring fully grown Akura Vashimu with ease.

Biological Adaptations

Akura Vashimu has purple-blue crystals growing on its back, claw, and tail. Even the shell on its body is made from the crystals. These crystals come from a special liquid, nourished by its nutrient rich, colorless blood, that it produces in its tail that it is capable of spraying. This liquid has three primary uses by the Akura Vashimu. Its first uses is as a tool. When this liquid comes in contact with the air, it hardens into the crystals found on their body. Even if the tail is damaged in battle the liquid freely drips from the tail tip. By using it Akura Vashimu is able to repair broken parts of its shell and crystals. Often after repairs are marks of the areas that were repaired which overlap each other. The second use is as a weapon. Besides using the liquid as a tool, it also uses it as a weapon to protect itself and kill prey. In high amounts the liquid can make creatures tire and even grow crystals on them before the crystals eventually explode. The crystals explode due to them being removed from the body source. This explosion can kill prey almost instantly depending on the target. The last use it has for the liquid is for adapting to certain habitats. This allows Akura Vashimu to live in a wide range of habitats just by adjusting the liquids to its liken. From the liquids Akura Vashimu can live in a wide range of areas from cold northern Boreal Forests to the south Desert. The pincers of Akura Vashimu is as sharp as a Shogun Ceanataur's, making them quite devastating to all sorts of creatures. The jaws are known to be extremely powerful though they only get used for eating it. These mandibles are strong enough to crush ore. For external defense, if all other defenses fail, Akura Vashimu has hairs under it that contain toxins capable of paralyzing threats. These same toxins can be found in its tail and even used when the crystals are removed from its tail. Some Akura Vashimu are capable of using these toxins without losing their tail crystals.

Some older individuals with orange eyes and yellow hairs have found new ways to attack foes. Some attacks include producing multiple crystals that over time explode by themselves, purposely running towards one of its crystals and setting it off early, a full 360 tail spin spray, and a powerful hipcheck attack. When in the red blood phase said hipcheck attack goes at such force that Akura Vashimu itself will fall over.

Behavior

Akura Vashimu are mostly nocturnal creatures that much rather prefer the cool night hours to the scorching heat of the day. They are ambush predators that burrow into the sand and leave only their crystal tail tips visible luring prey with the beautiful blue and purple glowing crystals in the night. When a prey item gets within range, Akura Vashimu will strike using its tail as a mace, grab with their powerful claws, or shoot their high-pressure crystal venom beam. If provoked or attacked, they will defend themselves and aggressively attack their enemy with fast, brutal attacks known for relentlessly beating large opponents with its tail. In situations when Akura Vashimu lose their tail, they are known to eat their own tail. This unique behavior makes Akura Vashimu a true wonder of nature.
