Shogun Ceanataur are somewhat high in the food chain. Very little is powerful enough to prey on them, although weak or old individuals may sometimes find themselves at risk from more powerful predators such as Lavasioth, Teostra, Lunastra, Rajang, Agnaktor, Lagiacrus, Akura Jebia, Abiorugu, Meraginasu or even the rare Crimson Fatalis. Despite this, they can more than hold their own against most creatures. They are also known to have battles with Khezu in the caves of the swamp.
Its claws are very powerful and very strong, but very fragile, and enable the creature to burrow through even volcanic rock. It is unknown how the Shogun Ceanataur can still burrow into the hard rock even with both its claws broken in some situations. 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. This water was recently discovered to actually be their urine.
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.
Shogun Ceanataur are somewhat docile, however, when foes are spotted, they will defend themselves with their sharp claws.
