The Hornetaur are small, beetle-like Neopterons.



Like the related Vespoid, they are highly susceptible to poison. Due to their small size, many find them difficult to hit directly.


Hornetaurs will frequently attack the hunter in groups, making it irksome to fight other monsters in the area. If hit with normal weapons, these monsters will frequently shatter completely.
