This week we look at the natural predator of the rubbery chicken! That skins them for a living! Our arachnid friend, Nerscylla!
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
A Temnoceran that spins webs to defend territory and hunt prey. They bind foes that have been weakened by ailments and devour them with giant mandibles. They are fond of wearing the hides left by the Gypceros prey they consume.
Nerscylla is very different from the Carapaceons and the Neopterons. Its in its own class from its fangs or mouthparts being able to extend out.
Their webs can expand throughout a whole cave system.
As they get older, the toxins in their needle in their abdomen gets stronger.
Nerscylla usually nest near farms due to their livestock. It will grab a few of them and possibly any villagers who wander into its web. After attacking livestock, you may notice yarn in its web along with carts. This causes hunters to be called in to hunt them for that reason.
Nerscylla preys on Gypceros and wears its skin but the reason why it wears its skin is to increase its strength by using its preys material to protect it from some of its thunder weaknesses, which may suggest some high intelligence.
