An Ancient differs from an Elder in not only age, but status. Though too old to participate in Hunts or battles, Ancients are referred to for counsel and wisdom gathered from their many years of life. This, however, can be disputed due to the canon of a more barbaric warrior race that may outcast the old due to their age. This would mean the Ancients are of no more use to the clan, as they cannot participate in their day-to-day activities. Such warrior races would also respect and honor such age and wisdom. In either case, there is no true evidence found to either prove or disprove what, or who, an Ancient truly is.
Ancient Predators have also been seen with gray dreadlocks as opposed to the jet black ones seen on younger Yautja and more "hair" on their faces. This is likely a result of the old age of Ancient Predators.
Ancient Bio-Masks are very different than that of most Predators. This would most likely be because of their long lived lives that would give them time to customize and enhance their masks.
