Behind the Scenes
Universe Monster Hunter

The Aptonoth is common, with dark gray skin and black stripes along its back.


It has one large horn/plate on its head. They are the cousins of the more aggressive Apceros. These weak monsters pose a minimal threat to hunters. These docile creatures are hunted by humans and other monsters for their meat. They always travel in groups. When one Aptonoth is threatened, others will run away for safety, but the alpha male of the Aptonoth group fights back and then leaves. These weak monsters are at the bottom of the food chain. They prefer temperate regions, like forests and swamps. They will stand on their hind legs and roar, as well as walk much faster, whenever a predator near. If a predator is in the same area, they will be extremely restless, groan, and move around very frequently, but will not leave the area until that predator is close-by.
