A lemur-like Fanged Beast monster with large ears and uniquely adapted forelimbs and tail.

MH4-Kechawacha Render 001


Kechawacha can fold its ears over its face, forming a "mask" that is likely used to intimidate would-be attackers. It also sports a tube-like trunk and large, forward-facing eyes.


It is also capable of shooting globs of mucus from its trunk-like nose that cause Waterblight to attack from a distance.

It is shown that Kechawacha is able to glide using a membrane between its arms, legs, and tail, in a manner similar to a flying squirrel. This makes the Kechawacha the first Fanged Beast able to "fly".


Curious in nature Kechawacha will investigate anything in their environment that is new to them. As relatively peaceful monsters these creatures would rather flee than fight, yet if fleeing is not an option they can be surprisingly aggressive and will readily use their long, sharp, and hooked claws, nose-like trunk and mask-like ears to defend themselves.


It appears to inhabit forested areas, using the tree limbs and canopy to swing freely from place to place.
