Asashiugu's are nocturnal black medium sized Neopterons that uses the corpses of other Neopterons as an extra shell
Asashiugu's are six legged black medium sized Neopterons that use the corpses of other monsters as protection and intimidation. Each of their 6 bulbous legs have 3 powerful black claws that can crush boulders. An Asashiugu's front legs are slightly bigger and stronger than their other legs. Asashiugu's wear the corpses of Neopterons such as Seltas Queens, Konchu's and their personal favourite Altaroth's. An Asashiugu's mouth consists of three parts the syringe, the mandibles and the jaw. The syringe can only be seen when they are feeding and it looks like a long black worm like tounge but it's serrated on the bottom of. The mandibles of the Asashiugu are extremely sensitive but they are also extremely toxic they are also able to extend their mandibles like a nerscylla. And finally the jaw of the Asashiugu. The jaw of the Asashiugu is the most durable part of it's mouth. An Asashiugu's carapace is sharp and tough. Asashiugu's have extremely weak wings that they can use to fly (albeit not very far).
The Asashiugu is an extremely intelligent monster that uses the corpses of other Neopterons to protect itself. Asashiugu's intelligence allows it to confuse and ambush would be hunters.
Young Asashiugu's can live anywhere as long as it is damp and dark while older Asashiugu's can live anywhere even in deserts but they only are only seen in deserts at night time.
Asashiugu's are at the top of the food chain due to them being able to defeat any larger creature easily by ambushing them and squeezing them to death. They feed mainly on small Neopterons like Konchu and Altaroth, but they will also eat Seltas Queen, which is quite a feat due to them being much smaller in comparison.
Asashiugu's have three biological adaptations that make them extremely dangerous Neopterons. Its powerful arms, its intelligence and its sticky spit which also doubles as quite a powerful poison make them quite potent.
Asashiugu's are solitary creatures that can only be found with others of their species in their breeding season, which is in between the months of June and July. Asashiugu's tend to ignore other monsters unless they are hungry, in which case they will violently attack any Neopteron they see. The main reasons they are hunted is due to the fact that attack caravans that go near their hiding places waiting for prey. Asashiugu's have been known to use the corpses of small neopterons to attract prey to its hiding place so it can kill and devour it.
