Robas were the favored prey of the Ranats, who used hit-and-run tactics to kill them. Packs of Ranats would chase the giant beasts, making swift, flesh-ripping attacks to weaken the robas and quickly retreating from their large tusks. Eventually, the weakened beasts would fall, and the Ranats would move in for the kill.
Robas were rare on Aralia, possibly due to overhunting by the Ranats.
