The Crystal Basarios is a Flying Wyvern. It has features not usually seen on normal Basarios.

Habitat Range

Crystal Basarios has only been seen inhabiting Dark Veil Forest.

Ecological Niche

Basarios is the juvenile form of Gravios, and therefore its main ecological goal is reaching adulthood. They are far weaker than Gravios, so they rely mostly on their camouflage and hard outer shell to deter attacks. Basarios are abandoned by their mothers shortly after being born, and spend much of their early lives feeding and looking out for themselves. Large predators such as Akantor or Deviljho will try to prey on the juvenile Wyverns. Due to these predatory attempts, Basarios must rely on their camouflage as their main defense. While ores and minerals are a large part of their diet, they will occasionally feed on meat in order to gain protein.

Biological Adaptions

Crystal Basarios has the same features as a normal Basarios, though the only real difference is the unusually large rocks on its back. Due to various minerals adhering to this Basarios's body, its appearance has changed.


Much less aggressive than its adult form, Basarios are content with maintaining their rock-like camouflage and feeding on minerals.
