Interesting Facts About Volvidon

  • Order: Pelagusia
  • Suborder: Hard Claw
  • Infraorder: Shell Beast
  • Family: Volvidon

  • Volvidon prefer dry environments like deserts and volcanoes.
    • However, surprisingly Volvidon are seen inhabiting the cool temperate Deserted Island as well when first thought to only inhabit areas with intense and extreme heat. This is due to the much higher insect populations during certain periods of time in the Moga Woods.
  • Volvidon have a special armor on their backs, protecting them from attacks while also being very flexible. When contorted into a ball, there is little that a predator can do.
    • Their shells can even withstand fire and lava.
  • Its tongue is long and sticky, allowing it to grasp prey from long distances.
  • Since it feeds mainly on Bnahabra and Altaroth, it is able to convert the paralyzing toxins the insects naturally produce in to its own system due to a specialized organ located in its mouth, along with a smelly gas. This being done, now its own saliva has the same paralytic qualities, aiding it in its defense against predators.
    • Volvidon also feed on roots in the ground.
  • Their shells are sometime worn for rituals in the Fire Country.
