Mammoth Birds are fast enough to outrun the Hunters on foot, but are easily run down by Monsters, even without using stamina. Mammoth Birds are worth 3 meats, making them well worth killing and eating while playing the monster. However, if a Monster or Hunter should get too close, the Mammoth Bird will unleash a burst of electricity from its tentacles, damaging Monster and Hunter alike. This attack deals sizeable damage for the Mammoth birds size, equivalent to a quarter of hunters health.

Descended from aquatic cephalopods, Mammoth Birds are not avians. Their closest land-dwelling relatives are the Blitz Leopards. Mammoth Bird legs are actually specially adapted tentacles, which leaves their other tentacles free as prehensile grasping, hunting, and eating tools. Another two of its tentacles have evolved into sophisticated bioluminescent lures that store a potent electric charge. They use the lure/charge combination to hunt Spotters. The tentacles worm their way into the Spotters’ den, prompting the Spotters to investigate the light and get themselves stunned by the electric charge.
