- Species: Altaroth
Altaroth have been seen in a variety of environments. They've been spotted in the Jurassic Frontier, Deserted Island, Sandy Plains, Flooded Forest, Volcano, Misty Peaks, Primal Forest, Frozen Seaway, Volcanic Hollow, and Heaven's Mount.
Altaroth are at the bottom of the food chain. They feed on mushrooms, honey, nuts, and fruit. They are the primary food for the Barroth, Volvidon, Kecha Wacha, and Ash Kecha Wacha. Altaroth are also a delicacy to humans due to them producing the Ripened Mushroom.
Altaroth have large mandibles used for absorbing their favorite foods. Though these are primarily used for food, larger Altaroth are known to bite enemies with these mandibles. To help them feed, special enzymes are used to digest these foods. The foods are changed before they're held in Altaroth's abdomen and brought back to the colony. Their abdomen produces formic acid, similar to ants, for protection. Compared to other Neopteron, Altaroth are quite fragile in nature.
Altaroth are quite peaceful until provoked. If attacked, Altaroth will send in their soldiers to fight and protect the colony. Atlaroth live inside huge nests filled with a giant colony.
