  • Suborder: Spine Insect
  • Family: Hornetaur

Hornetaur are a grasshopper-like Neopteron, closely related to Altaroth.

Habitat Range

Hornetaur have been found in the Forest and Hills, Verdant Hills, Old Jungle, Jungle, Old Swamp, and Swamp.

Ecological Niche

Hornetaur are ravenous eaters that can eat away whole fields in a days time. They will pretty much eat everything in a area like a locust, causing major amounts of damage while doing so. The main predators of Hornetaur are Gypceros and Astalos.

Biological Adaptations

Hornetaurs sport a large horn for their size that may be used for defense. Their legs are strong, much like a Grasshopper's, so they can jump great distances. There wings are sharp enough to cut human skin just by brushing against them.


Hornetaurs are relatively peaceful compared to the Vespoid. However, if threatened, they will frequently jump over the hunter to attack them. This is more of a nuisance then a real threat. They are known to slowly stalk anything they think they can take down.
