The Great Jaggi is a new monster exclusively featured in Monster Hunter 3 and the head of alpha male counterpart of the Jaggi. They have a very commanding presence, and it is said that they can call and issue complex orders to their packs with their barks. The smaller male prey version of Great Jaggi is the Jaggi and the female prey version is the Jaggia.
The commanding alpha male of Jaggi packs. Most males leave the group upon reaching maturity, returning later to compete with the others. The dominant male then becomes a Great Jaggi. Apparently, they can issue fairly complex orders via howling.
 A Tip from Ironbeard the Master Hunter and Friends
"He may be a wee fellow compared to some of the oth'r beasties ya hunt, but they're real strength is in vast numbers! If you hear the Great Jaggi howlin', hit 'em hard to stop 'im from callin' his pesky pack."
"Watch out for his thick tail. You'll know when he begins to do a little hop. Weapons with head bash capabilities, keep aiming for its head. They're very susceptible to concussions. It's always fun knocking the little ones into the air."
"The Great Jaggi has a knack for letting his pack keep you occupied while he slams you with his hip and tail. A well placed flash bomb can blind the whole pack momentarily, which will give you the window you need to attack the leader."
 Tricks (cheats)
A Great Jaggi can be lured in the Sandy Plains by holding a herbivore egg on quests that he can appear, this will make him come straight to the area which you are holding the egg. Note: this cannot work if the Great Jaggi isn't in on the map already, this is merely a quick way to locate him.
