Great Jagras attack patterns

This monster generally moves quite slowly and tries to attack with its front paws. It has two different attacking states too, and it's easy to spot which it's in by the size of its belly.

If it's just eaten, the Great Jagras will have a swollen belly and will be much more dangerous. This does expose the chest though, which is a weak point and breakable. If you break it while the Great Jagras is in this state, it will throw up and revert back to its less powerful state.
