Ashen Lao-Shan Lung belongs to a class of monster known as the Elder Dragon. It is a Lao-Shan Lung that was living in a volcanic environment.
Only spotted in the Volcano and surrounding mountain ranges, Ashen Lao-Shan Lung must remain near large supplies of minerals in order to sustain themselves. Ashen Lao-Shan Lung are sometimes seen venturing through the Fortress.
Ashen Lao-Shan Lung are known to feed on ore and minerals in volcanic environments. From their giant size, they have few monsters to fear, except two. Fatalis and Crimson Fatalis are the only known monsters to make them flee.
Ashen Lao-Shan Lung gets its coloring by absorbing mineral particles in the atmosphere near volcanic areas. From this change in environment, its hide is tough.
Ashen Lao-Shan Lung is extremely docile. The creature often takes little notice of hunters, but will occasionally tackle perches that hunters shoot at the creature from.
