In-Game Information

MH4-Zamite Icon

Juvenile Zamtrios that use their sharp teeth to pierce the hide of their prey and then burrow inside to consume them from within; those who are attacked must roll around vigorously to shake the monster off. Zamite grow rapidly after even a single feeding.

Taxonomy

  • Order: Caudata
  • Suborder: Monster Shark
  • Family: Zamtrios

Zamite are members of the Amphibian class and are the juvenile form of the fearsome Zamtrios.

Habitat Range

These creatures inhabit the desolate Frozen Seaway.

Ecological Niche

These amphibians feed on other small creatures like Konchu and Bnahabra. Zamite are quite low on the food chain. They are preyed upon by larger predators such as Tigrex, Deviljho, Tetsucabra, Tidal Najarala, and Stygian Zinogre. Adult Zamtrios are also major predators of the juveniles. 

Biological Adaptations

The growth cycle of Zamite are fast and they have to grow quickly in order to avoid being eaten. The limbs of a Zamite are housed within its body until it gains enough nutrients from its food. When eating, these amphibians continue to grow larger at a fast pace. The spike-like protrusion on their heads are used to help burrow through the ice and to injure prey. They gradually lose this spike as they grow older, due to gaining the ability to create ice armor including an ice spike.

Behavior

Zamite behave just like Giggi in the manner of aggressively attacking any possible food source and draining them of their vital fluids. For travelers it's best to avoid these creatures at all costs.
