Gastodon is an Herbivore first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. These pack animals live in heard found around the Elder's Recess.


Gastodon resembles a cross between a theropod and a bison. It is covered in scales but has a large furry mane and horns reminiscent of a bison. When angered, it will glow red.


Gastodons live in herds around the Elder's Recess. They are very aggressive towards hunters and are willing to attack larger monsters as a herd. These monsters become immediately hostile if the hunter gets too close. They have a tendency to attack other monsters as well.
