|The Towering Carapaceon|
|First Appearance||Monster Hunter Freedom 2|
Shen Gaoren is a large Carapaceon (Crab) that is fought similarly to Lao. It looks quite similar to a Shogun Ceanataur.
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.
 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.
 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.
