Great Jagras Topics:

Great Jagras is a Fanged Wyvern first introduced in Monster Hunter: World.

MHW-Great Jagras Render 001


Great Jagras greatly resembles an Iguana. It has yellow scales with orange accents and a bluish underside. It also has a distinct mane of hairs that resemble dreadlocks. The monster has incredible stomach capacity and often swallows prey whole, greatly distending its belly.


Great Jagras is able to swallow large prey whole in one gulp, allowing it to use its immense weight to fight off any potential threats. It also on very rare occasions will vomit at the hunter as a projectile if it's stomach is bloated, which is similar to the Great Girros Paralyzing Spit.


Great Jagras are passive toward hunters until attacked.


Great Jagras can be seen inhabiting the Ancient Forest.
