Seruslong are a large, short necked terrestrial leviathans that have powerful forelimbs and claws that are used for burrowing through solid rock and long jaws filled with fearsome fangs and a prehensile barbed tongue as well as a long constricting tail. A Seruslongs body is covered in thick bony and almost skeletal armor that gives it protection from the rocks it digs through. Seruslongs limbs are longer and more developed than most other leviathans.
Seruslong is able to change the texture of its skin and manipulate the hormones in its body, when it skin takes on a rust color it defense sharply rises and when it skin takes on a red tint it becomes faster and its attacks deal more damage. Seruslong is also able to camouflage itself by blending in with the environment. Seruslongs claws and forelimbs are powerful enough to allow it to dig quickly through solid rock and its rear legs are strong enough to allow it to jump. It can use its barbed tongue to harpoon prey and hunters. Seruslong mouths are near septic and have foul smelling bacteria growing in their mouths this bacteria is able to weaken its prey.
Seruslong are native only to the Primeval Coastline and inhabit the large redwood forests located in that region, it is unknown if that is their only range as they are quite reclusive and rare creatures.
Seruslong are the top predators in of a lot of areas it is found in. Seruslongs are a keystone species and fill a niche similar to Akantor and its kin. Seruslong are known to prey on large monsters like Duramboros and even Uragaan and on occasion they will even hunt other large predatory species that wonder into their territory, even the fearsome and powerful Sicarapax, Ferrumos and Dinovaldo are on this monsters menu. The only things that could potentially threaten a Seruslong is other Elder Dragon-Level Monsters or Elder Dragons themselves.
Seruslong will attack and kill almost anything on sight, and even when not actively hunting or in combat, Seruslong appear highly aggressive, destroying whatever bothers them as they travel their destinations. These rare monsters have made exploring and documenting the deep forests of the Primeval Coastline an extreme hazard to scientists and guild members. Seruslong spend most of their lives sleeping underground in a hibernation like slumber, they do this so that the populations of their prey can rise so they don't overhunt them. Despite being subteranian creatures they have good eye sight.
