A close relative of the Yian Kut-Ku known for its hard black shell and tufts of white mane. These clever monsters are known to avoid traps and use their poisonous tail to deadly effect; they are not to be taken lightly.
Yian Garuga just love to fight without any rhyme or reason. This is because they feel like their being challenged by a threat and just love it.
