Robataurs (Scientific name pending) are carapaceons that appear in Monster Hunter Aetheria Frontier. They are the young form of Syndicate Robataur.

In Game information

Robataur
no icon Small Carapaceons related to Hermitaurs that have a sense of Kleptomania, as they have a tendency to steal shiny objects from people, hence their title: "Robber Crabs".

Physiology

They are crab like monsters with greyish black carapaces and a thick, white shell. This shell is grown by the Robataur. Once it grows into a Syndicate Robataur (assuming it lives long enough), it will reject the shell and replace it with hard substances made of calcium carbonate (such as bones and skulls from monster carcasses for example) to use as it's new armor.

They have large and thick claws for their size, which only grows larger as th e Robataur itself grows bigger.

Behavior

When left alone, these omnivorous carapaceons are often seen foraging for food. They are normally scavengers, and are not too hard to please when it comes to valid food sources, such as plant matter, carrrion, small organisms, etc. They will even use their large claws to smash tough nuts and coconuts open, or rip flesh apart.

They do, however, have a penchant for stealing shiny objects from people, especially when the said owners of the objects in question are not paying attention. They will only rarely attack a person to steal a shiny object they are interested in.

Habitats

Although somewhat adaptable, they prefer to be in places where they can find plenty of bones, skulls, and other sorces of calcium carbonate. Hence, they can be found mostly in Monster Cemetery, but can be found in most tropical and subtropical enviroments.

Etymology

They get their name from the other name of the real life coconut crab: The Robber Crab. The Robber Crab gets it's name for it's tendency to take shiny objects from tourists.

Notes and Trivia

  • Using a Sonic Bomb will stun a Robataur before they snap out of it and burrow underground to flee the area.
  • Like Melynx, if they manage to hit a hunter, they will steal a random item. But unlike melynx, they will try to steal Raw Meat based items as a priority. This can be used against them if the hunter holds Poisoned, Tainted and/or Drugged meat, as the effects of those meats will be placed on the Robataur that eats it.
  • Inspired by the Coconut Crab, also known by it's alternate name, the Robber Crab.

Ecology

Taxonomy

Robataurs are Young Carapaceons. When fully Grown, they will become Syndicate Robataur.

Habitats

They are mostly found in Monster Cemetery, but can be found in Tropical and Subtropical enviroments in the Continent of Aetheria's Revalius Region.

Ecological Niche

Although mostly scavengers, Robataurs are Omnivores, and are not too hard to please in terms of food. Their diet includes carrion, Plantmatter, smaller organisms, etc. They are known to fall prey to larger creatures, however.

Biological Adaptations

They have a white shell, similar to Hermitaurs, which offer minor protection or for hiding from predators. As for tools, they use their large claws to hold onto food and other objects, as well as ripping flesh and smashing clams, oysters and coconuts open.

Behavior

They prefer to keep to themselves mostly, but are known to steal shiny objects from people, hence their title, "The Robber Crab".
