Nuera are members of the Pelagus/Fanged Beast class. They are almost considered Elder Dragons due to their uniqueness, util research proved otherwise.
Nuera seem to prefer to live in forests and swamps. Their known habitats include the Great Forest, Jungle, Flooded Forest, Sunken Hollow, Primal Forest, Jurassic Frontier, and the Marshlands.
These Fanged Beasts are terrifying predators, feasting upon a variety of prey including Bullfango, Mosswine, Aptonoth, Slagtoth, and Kelbi. They also eat Vespoid and Bnahabra. They will not hesitate in going after smaller monsters such as Velocidrome, Bulldrome, Yian Kut-ku, Kecha Wacha, and Seltas. They have even been reported to take on other large predators such as Rathian, Pink Rathian, Khezu, Nargacuga, Tigrex, Zinogre, Najarala, and Deviljho. This proves just how aggressive and powerful these creatures are. While seemingly carnivorous, Nuera are actually omnivorous. They have been seen eating various plants and mushrooms.
Nuera's body seems to be an amalgamation of different creatures. Its monkey-like head allows it to produce several different shrieks and cries used for communication or as a warning. Its tiger-like legs allow the creature to move stealthily and run particularly fast. Its wolf-like body is sturdy and is covered in short, plush fur. Its tail highly resembles a snake, bearing a round, spherical pincer that is adorned with black and yellow eyespots. From this tail it can produce a black smoke that it uses to conceal itself. This peculiar combination of traits seems to have originated from interbreeding between ancient species of Fanged Beasts. Nuera appears to have excellent vision as it can seemingly see through the smoke it produces. From its mouth the smoke gains toxic properties, sapping away the strength of any creature that inhales it. The smoke it produces comes from the toxins of certain foods it eats. The toxins are stored in its liver and then expelled via glands in mouth throat and tail, which turn the toxins into a gaseous state. The glands in its tail removes these toxins and sends it to the throat glands, giving the smoke it emits from its mouth potent poisonous properties.
Nuera are vicious monsters that hunt at night and hides within the shadows, stalking its prey until an opportunity arises and strikes. When it is day time, it will use its dark gas to mimic the night time darkness. They are incredibly aggressive, attacking other monsters of various sizes, from small Velocidromes to large Rathians.
