Apceros are herbivores with turtle-like features that live in hot regions.
Apceros are herbivorous reptiles that frequent desert and volcanic areas. They have a body structure similar to Aptonoth, their evolutionary cousins. They have many characteristics of turtles, such as head shape and protective shell. Their tails have a developed mace-like structure on the end that is covered with sharp spikes.
Usually, Apceros attack by headbutting and whipping foes with their spiked tails. They are infamous for their tactic of slowly stalking the hunter, eventually tightly surrounding them, preventing movement.
Apceros are territorial monsters and will attack any intruder on sight. They will not give up fighting until the enemy has fallen or they are dead. Curiously, they work in small herds to take out any threats. They appear not to care if a large monster is in the area.
Apceros' hard shells and thick skin protect them from heat. Normally, they can only be found in hot areas like Deserts and Volcanoes.
The Apceros closely resemble the real-world Ankylosaurus, featuring similar armor plating and tail club.
When provoked, an Apceros will slowly close in on a hunter, until they are close enough to headbutt or tail swipe. This can be highly annoying while trying to hunt a larger, more dangerous monster, as it limits the hunters' ability to move.
