Ceanataur is a Carapaceon introduced in Monster Hunter 2. It is known to inhabit subtropical zones and can be encountered at all ranks.

MHF2-Ceanataur Render 001


Similar in appearance to the Hermitaur with sharper claws, leg stubs and a higher-edge shell. The shell on its back was actually grown by the Ceanataur itself. Only when it grows much larger into a Shogun Ceanataur will it replace its shell with a Gravios skull.


It is able to spit a small ball of poisonous fluid at foes. Sometimes, a Ceanataur may wait beneath the ground for prey or a hunter to pass, jumping out of the ground and striking them when they walk over. A Ceanataur that's burrowed underground can be spotted by the puffs of dust that it regularly spits out.


Ceanataurur lives mainly in Volcano, where its extremely sharp claws allow it to tunnel through the dense rock.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter Freedom 2 / Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
MHFU-Ceanataur Icon An adolescent Carapaceon with an organic shell firmly placed on its back. Once grown, this shell will be replaced by a giant monster's skull. Mainly living in volcanic zones, it is very aggressive, and not to be underestimated.

  • Throwing a Sonic Bomb near a Ceanataur will briefly immobilize it. Small Barrel Bombs thrown by a Felyne Comrade will also have the same effect.
