The Canopy Sea is an area located in the New World. It is composed of giant trees, whose foliage is so dense that hunters and monsters can stand on the canopy without risk of falling. It is called a "Sea" as some monsters even appear to "swim" in the foliage. The closer the hunters get to the trees bottom, the harder it is to see anything, and the stranger the monsters are, like in an oceanic trench. Monsters living in this area are adapted to the live in trees. The area is actually below sea level, and near to a cliff found in another area with dense vegetation, allowyng some monstes like mosswines to reach the trees even if they don't know how to climb.
