Anjanath resembles a Tyrannosaurus; it has black and grey fur on its back which coupled with its flesh-toned scales, make it look similar to the archetypal image of a vulture. Its hide is primarily pink in color, while a dark pelt covers its back which ends in a ruff at the neck, leaving the head bald. Large fangs protrude from the monster's lower jaw, giving it the appearance of an under-bite. Anjanath's massive jaws are counterbalanced by its bulky tail, the underside of which is lined with quills. Compared to its powerful hind legs, the monster's forearms are extremely small. Hidden beneath the monster's pelt is a pair of dorsal sails, which only flare out at select moments. Anjanath can also unfold a prominent nasal crest, which it uses to mark its territory via mucus, sniff out prey, or indicate heightened aggression. Once primed, the flame sac located in Anjanath's throat will glow a fiery red.
Behavior and Abilities
Anjanath has powerful jaws that allow it to rip apart foes, along with a powerful nose used for smelling out prey. It also has the ability to breathe fire from its mouth utilizing an organ in its throat. Anjanath are relentless predators that will chase down anything that dares attack them. Once they've been provoked, Anjanath won't let an enemy get away easily. When enraged, Anjanath will breathe heavily and reveal its nostrils. It will also occasionally flash small fins from its back. Anjanath's head and legs can be wounded, the legs becoming more suspectible to damage when broken. Its tail can also be severed.
In the Ancient Forest, Anjanath is in the middle of the food chain. Anjanath has Turf Wars with every monster that is found exclusively in the Ancient Forest, but it has none for any monster that is found in the Wildspire Waste. Once enraged, Anjanath will chase down any foe in its way. It will even chase hunters into other areas, following them without a second thought. This is also true for most large monsters in the game.
