It is significantly larger than normal Ioprey and possesses a larger crest. Unlike other pack leaders, Iodrome has a more amphibian look, with salamander-like skin that seems to glisten with moisture, and a frog-like throat sac. It also lacks the sharp claws of its relatives, relying more on poison to bring down prey like Aptonoth and enemies.
Although not as strong as Flying Wyverns, it can quickly cripple hunters with the power of its pack and poison. Iodrome is a threat due to its speed, agility, considerable strength and poison. When threatened, Iodrome spits Poison from the poison sac in its throat.
Iodrome is the leader of a pack of Ioprey, and always travels with its pack for protection.
It is often seen in the various different Swamp and Volcano zones, although as of Monster Hunter 4 Iodrome can also be found in the Everwood.

In a CG video, Iodrome is seen commanding a pack of Ioprey to attack a Zinogre. They almost succeed in killing it, but Zinogre succumbs to the Frenzy Virus and ravages the Iodrome, who is promptly killed and devoured by its own pack, now also infected by the virus.
This is the only time in Monster Hunter 4 and 4U where small monsters are seen infected with the Frenzy Virus.
Monster Hunter Frontier
Iodrome can be kept as a pet.
HR5 Iodromes have been seen travelling in pairs, following each other closely through different areas.
G-Rank Iodrome gains a few new attacks; an improved bite that releases poison and a improved poison spit where after the projectile touches the ground it forms a toxic puddle that eventually fades away. Other new attacks include a high speed charge and a jump in air whilst spitting poison move, always followed by landing and delivering an uppercut that launches hunters.
Iodrome can be attacked by Baruragaru mid-quest; if it succumbs to the attack, Baruragaru will subsequently be able to use poison-based attacks.
