Pteropod are a unique monster found in midnight biomes, toxic biomes and swamp mini biomes, as well as in poison Ancient Vaults. Their main attack is a spit attack similar to the snaunt attack and the crutter attack which deals 10 base damage. Their sound effect sounds rather like a grunting pig.
This monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Fire damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Poison damage. Additionally, it cannot be inflicted with Poisoned.
A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the status effect burning when touched. Also, instead of the spit attack of the normal variant, it has a shotgun-style attack similar to the fully charged attack of the Pollen Pump, and uses this attack at a closer distance.
This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.
