Dread Baelidae can be found inhabiting Dark Veil Forest.
The Dread Baelidae is high in the food chain in its environment. Feeding on creatures such as Mosswine, Bullfango, and Vespoid. Despite its easy prey, it has to compete with large monsters such as Shogun Ceanataur, Purple Gypceros, and Basarios.
Like their cousins, Dread Baelidae are able to produce and shoot silk to capture prey. This silk is extremely thick, making it hard for captured prey to escape. Unlike Baelidae, it can actually add two different toxins into its silk, making its already strong silk deadly. These toxins can either sap away the prey's strength or even paralyze prey in its tracks. Their pincers can rip the very ground with their sheer force.
Dread Baelidae are a lot more aggressive than the Baelidae. With the silk combined with their deadly toxins, Dread Baelidae have a better success rate at capturing prey than their cousin.
