Dodogama has blue scales with orange stripes covering its body. It has a massive bottom jaw used for storing rocks in its mouth, which will turn orange when they become volatile.
Behaviour and Abilities
Dodogama is known to defend itself using the rocks it consumes. When these rocks are combined with its saliva they become explosive in nature, becoming a powerful explosive projectile that it can spit at predators and other aggressors. However, damaging its jaw enough after it has eaten can cause the rocks within its mouth to prematurely explode, briefly weakening the monster. It is also capable of using a charge attack that generates Blast-inflicting sparks.
Deviljho will pick up and flail Dodogama around as a weapon when encountered each other. Otherwise, despite being considered a lower monster in the food chain, Dodogama can still protect itself and its territory against other monsters lurking in the Elder's Recess thanks to its projectiles.
Dodogama is a fairly docile monster, only fighting Hunters if they attack it first or if it is already fighting another large monster.
