Shogun Ceanataur is a Carapaceon. However, they hardly resemble their cousins, the Daimyo Hermitaur. Shogun Ceanataur also has a Subspecies, known as Terra Shogun Ceanataur, and a Deviant, known as Armor Shredder Shogun Ceanataur.

Habitat Range

Shogun Ceanataur can be found inhabiting the VolcanoSwampDark Veil ForestTide Island and Ruined Ridge in the Old World. In the New World, they can be found at the Deserted Island.

Ecological Niche

Shogun Ceanataur are somewhat high in the food chain. They primarily feed on small creatures that live in dark environments like shrimp and insects, but will also feed on carrion. Despite this, they can more than hold their own against larger species. They are also known to have battles with Khezu and Terra Shogun Ceanataur in the caves of the swamp.

Biological Adaptions

Compared to Daimyo Hermitaur, Shogun Ceanataur has a much slimmer shape. From the lighter shell of Shogun Ceanataur, it is able to move faster than Daimyo Hermitaur. With this lighter armor, Shogun Ceanataur are also able to attack and move offensively rather than defensively. Another bizarre defense of Shogun Ceanataur is its own urine. While wearing a skull and hanging on a ceiling, Shogun Ceanataur are known to spray water on their enemies from the ceiling.

Some rare individuals possibly mutations, still use there poison ability's they used as a juvenile, these poison using Shogun Ceanataur have the ability to spray a sweeping beam of poison mixed with water even further than a Plum Daimyo Hermitaur water spitting. It is also able to expel poison gases from there soft tail inside the shells they wear. Variations in appearance on these individuals include poison stained shells, red mouth parts, red tinted claw pincers and joints, purple tinted on most blue parts of its body and shiny light grey eyes.


Each Shogun Ceanataur has their own personality. Some are more aggressive than others. When undisturbed, Shogun Ceanataur are usually fairly calm, however, if threatened, they will turn aggressive in an instant. They’ll unsheath their claws and will attempt to kill a foe. If the skull on Shogun Ceanataur's backside is broken, it'll immediately go looking for another one, so it can protect its vulnerable bottom.
