A Deviant of Gammoth that was recently discovered, Elderfrost Gammoth is an old individual that has been living in many harsh environments for a majority of its life.

Habitat Range

Elderfrost Gammoth have been seen inhabiting the Arctic Ridge and Frozen Seaway in the Old World.

Ecological Niche

A herbivorous species, Gammoth are known to feed on plants found in their snowy environments. Gammoth have even been found eating wood. Though Gammoth are giants, and have little to fear, they have to live in locations home to large predators like Tigrex, Blangonga, and Zamtrios. Despite this Gammoth are one giant that is rarely fed on by predators. The only creatures that could possibly be a major threat to a Gammoth are Ukanlos and Elder Dragons.

Biological Adaptions

Elderfrost Gammoth have many of the same adaptions as Gammoth, however, there is a few differences between them. Elderfrost Gammoth are noticeably larger and stronger than normal Gammoth. Elderfrost Gammoth get their secondary name, Elderfrost, due to the fur on their back resembling the white peaks of mountains. From Elderfrost Gammoth living in harsher environments than usual, their appearance has changed and now they've gained some new adaptions. Gammoth are known to cover their legs and tail in snow for protection, but Elderfrost Gammoth don't cover their legs in snow. Instead of snow, Elderfrost Gammoth are known to cover their legs, and even their trunk in spiky ice to act as protection. This ice can easily cut up foes that get too close to an Elderfrost Gammoth, even blocking most attacks. Compared to normal Gammoth, Elderfrost Gammoth has a stronger respiratory system, allowing it to use giant snowballs against foes and even fire powerful gust of wind from its trunk.

Behavior

Like normal Gammoth, Elderfrost Gammoth are a highly territorial species that can be quite dangerous in certain places. These beasts are able to cause blizzards and avalanches in snowy regions from their immense strength alone. Due to this, hunters are required to have a special permit in order to hunt a Elderfrost Gammoth.
