Paolumu are Flying Wyverns first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. Paolumu feast on eggs found in the Coral Highlands. They are able to float through the air using unique sacs in their bodies, and attack with their extremely hard tails. Their materials can be used to craft unusual raw weapons and the Lumu Armor Sets.


Physiology

Paolumu is a bat-like wyvern that slightly resembles the Honduran white bat. Like said bat species, Paolumu is covered in white fur and has a pink face. Though it is covered in fur, Paolumu also has some brown scales covering its back, underbelly, and tail. The Paolumu has rodent-like buck teeth. This is because its diet consists of the eggs that come from the coral which Paolumu sucks in using its incredible breathing power. Paolumu's head, wings, and tail can be wounded.

Behavior and Abilities

Inside of Paolumu's neck is a special air sac that inflates once it has sucked in enough air. Once its air sac has inflated, Paolumu is able to float in the air like a balloon and able to attack foes from above. While floating, Paolumu will use its hard tail to batter foes at close range. Paolumu is also able to breathe wind at foes, it can also use its inhaling powers to draw in hunters closer or to make them stagger. Hunters can deflate Paolumu's neck by mounting it as well as attacking its neck.[1]

Paolumu are fairly calm unless provoked by a threat. Once provoked, they will become aggressive. Paolumu won't attack a hunter unless they attack it first. Paolumu is outclassed by Deviljho, Legiana[2], and Odogaron[3] in the Coral Highlands.
