This week we look at the juvenile of a particular armored knight of the Volcano, Basarios!
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
These juvenile Gravios are famous for their rock-hard carapaces. They often borrow underground, mimicking rocks and savaging oblivious miners. They are known to emit poison gases and are especially weak against bombs.
Basarios hides underground for camouflage. Hiding helps it hide from predators and allows it to ambush prey. Basarios are known to feed on Nepteron and other small prey.
Inside a Basarios’ stomach is a special bacteria that processes ore in the stomach, allowing Basarios to get nutrients from the ore. This bacteria also helps develop more powerful armor for the growing Basarios.
Sometimes eating ore just doesn’t give them the nutrients they need so they feed on live prey for proper nutrition occasionally.
Basarios are mostly found living in volcanic regions though can also be found living in swamps and forest areas.
Commonly, Basarios are found to have some volcanic properties on their shell.
Occasionally, some Basarios are burnt badly by lava causing them to be charred black in color. This color is known to follow them for their whole life.
Basarios are targeted by many poachers.
HC Basarios are said to be special individuals.
Rarer individuals even are able to send rocks filled with poison gas around them as a trap against threats.
