Altaroth are yellow colored ant like insects that inhabit warm environments. They live in logs, burrows, large sand columns, and a variety of other places. When threatened they can shoot a liquid from their abdomen that causes a temporary defense drop. Altaroth can absorb mushrooms, berries, fruit, honey, and other resources into their abdomen causing it to enlarge and change color depending on what was absorbed. When killed in this state whatever was absorbed will be dropped.
Small Altaroth will not attack unless provoked while larger Altaroth will not absorb resources and attack any hunter on sight, sending out orders to the smaller Altaroth to attack as well. They are capable of climbing vertical surfaces.
