Small Kemono Shell Skin is found in Natsukodachi Isle when you reach chapter 3. You have to be in chapter 3 because this material is found off the “Invasive” version of the small Kemono, Grassghoul Decapod. Invasive Kemono becomes available after completing chapter 2.

An easy way to spot a Grassghoul Decapod is by going into your Detailed Map option in the menu screen and hitting right on the D-pad until you reach Small Kemono. When you do this, a bunch of tiny dots will appear on the screen, which is a small Kemono. Move your cursor until you locate a Grassghoul Decapod.

You will find the Grassghoul Decapod on the detailed map, usually near the Ironsand Beach Dragon Pit. To make it easy to find this location, you can create a waypoint by hovering over the small dot representing the small Kemono and following it.

Once you find the Grassghoul Decapod, you must kill it and then collect the materials off its corpse. More likely than not, you will get Small Kemono Shell Skin, which you can bring it back to the Forge and use for whichever upgrade or armor you plan on crafting.

Now that you know where to find Small Kemono Shell Skin, take the time and learn where you can find other essential materials. Necessary materials include Bluestones, Corestones, Small Kemono Carapace, and especially Pet Kemono Tail Feather, which increases your health.
