|An aquatic Carapaceon living in seas with warm water. This predator hides itself behind the sand and ambushes its preys. When this doesn't work, he uses his tail to launch sand and blind it.|
Scoipterid is a Royal Ludroth sized Carapaceon. It looks like a mix beetween a scorpion and an eurypterid, having the second tail and pincers, and the first body. His tail is quite big, and it's pincers are inclined towards the ground instead of towards each other. It has some spines and it's black body is segmented like a horseshoe crab. Finaly, the end of his tail and the links beetwenn it's segmentshas some red hair like filaments
Scoipterids are predators specialized in ambushes. They hide behind the sand and grab a prey (a fish, or rarely an Epioth or a Ludroth) with their pincers, after they detect them with their filaments. If they fail to grab the prey, or find a predator, they try to blind it by making sand clounds with their tail, and attack it or flee depending on it's size. Scoipterid mother lay a lot of eggs, and few yougs reach adulthood.
The hunter reachs area 5 of the South Archipelago, climbs into one of the small islands, and sees a Jaggi. Unknow to him, something is moving behind the sand. The Bird Wyrwern attacks the hunter, who evades it and the Scoipteryd grabs the Jaggi instead of the hunter. After quickly eating it, the monster faces the hunter but instead of attacking it, it flees towards zone 6, and the hunter has to follow it.
Scoipterid can dig beneath the sand like gobul. It fights by using its pincers, its spines, and his tail which it also uses to make sand clounds which reduce the visibility like MH online Gendrome.
