The Plum Daimyo Hermitaur is a Daimyo Hermitaur with an unusual diet. This diet has discolored its body, changing it to a purplish color not usually seen.

Habitat Range

The Plum Daimyo Hermitaur lives in exactly the same environments as its red cousin, the Desert and the Jungle.

Ecological Niche

Like many Carapaceons, the Plum Daimyo Hermitaur is able to bury in the sand, hiding itself from the relentless heat of the Desert sun. When hungry, it surfaces and searches for food; mainly pickings from leftover carrion, though it is not aversed to hunting for itself.

The change in coloration is due to a change in diet. From its purple coloration, it makes it much harder for it to camouflage. This can lead it to being attacked by predators such as Brute TigrexRajangSeregios or Deviljho.

Biological Adaptations

The Plum Daimyo Hermitaur is capable of spitting jets of water much further than most of its cousins. The force with which it propels this stream is easily capable of piercing hide, or toppling monsters such as the Apceros. Against other wyverns or Carapaceons, this gives it an edge of range. Its legs are also a lot stronger, capable of pushing the large bulk of its body and the Diablos skull it wears as a shell at rapid speeds, in short bursts.


Plum Daimyo Hermitaur are much more aggressive than their red cousins due to their unusual diet.
