|Habitats||Forest and Hills, Snowy Mountains, Desert, Swamp|
|First Appearance||Monster Hunter Freedom|
Shakalakas, first introduced in Monster Hunter Freedom, are small mysterious creatures that are distant relatives of the felyne and melynx. They wear small pumpkin-like masks and no one has ever seen a shakalaka's face. Shakalakas disguise themselves as mushrooms in the Forest and Hills and Swamp areas, and cactus's in the Desert area. When a hunter gets too close to the mushroom/cactus, these little creatures pop out of the ground and attack with tiny but annoyingly powerful blades. They can take a beating before burying back into the ground and leaving their masks on the ground surface for you to carve.
From the carve you can obtain:
- Red Seeds
- Green Seeds
- Shakalaka Treasure
There is an alpha male amongst the Shakalaka's, the King Shakalaka.
