Apceros


Physiology

Apceros are much better equipped for dealing with predators, sporting thick armor plates on their heads and backs, as well as spiked, club-like tails for defense.

Abilities

Usually, Apceros attack by headbutting and whipping foes with their spiked tails.

Behavior

Apceros are territorial monsters and will attack any intruder on sight. They won't give up fighting until the enemy has fallen or they are dead.

Habitat

Apceros' hard shell and thick skin protect them from heat. Normally, they can only be found in hot areas like Deserts and Volcanoes.

Notes


  • 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.
