Interesting Facts About Beotodus

Order: Piscine Wyvern - Suborder: Fish Feet Wyvern - Superfamily: Frozen Fish Wyvern - Family: Beotodus

  • Beotodus is a Piscine Wyvern that swims in the snow of the Hoarfrost Reach.
  • Its existence has been known by the Guild for a while, but its species has barely been studied.
    • That's why the Handler already had some data on Beotodus during Iceborne's story.
  • On its head is a sharp horn that it uses to plow through the snow, and specialized fins on its legs allow it to kick up snow as it swims through its environment.
    • Wounding Beotodus's legs will prevent it from kicking up snow efficiently.
  • Like other Piscine Wyverns, Beotodus is a predator. It mainly feeds on Popo and will bury some of its kills in the snow for later consumption.
