Shen Gaoren is a large Carapaceon (Crab) that is fought similarly to Lao. It looks quite similar to a Shogun Ceanataur.

[edit] Description

The Shen Gaoren is an enormous crab. It uses a large Lao Shan Lung skull as a shell. It has four long legs that generate quake damage when the Gaoren walks. It has two very hard claws that make even the sharpest weapons bounce. It can fire an acidic blast from its' shell.

The Gaoren can be encountered in the Fortress and Town

[edit] Weaknesses and Strategies

The Shen is weakest to Fire and Dragon. With a melee weapon, attack the legs until they turn red. Then, attack the legs again to make the Shen fall. Once it falls, attack the head. That, and the part that connects it to its shell, are its weakest points.

[edit] Ranged Weapons

For a ranged weapon, the best tactic is to fire pierce shots through the shell so that they hit Shen's Brain. A very effective strategy is to use a Heavy Bowgun with good pierce shot support and Felyne Heroics.
