Order:Saurischia- Suborder:Dragon Feet- Superfamily:Pre-Winged Leg Wyvern- Family:Bario. It shares the same Superfamily with Nargacuga.
Due to its remarkable adaptation to the bitter cold and icy terrain of the Tundra, it is unlikely that it could survive anywhere else. However, another species the Sand Barioth, is found in the Sandy Plains.
Barioth are one of the monsters who are seated at the end of the food chain in their icy domain, the Tundra. They are very agile yet they hit hard at the same time. They ambush Popo, Anteka or Lagombi, who have protein-rich meat under their thick hides. It is unlikely that a Barioth would consider a Gigginox as prey, due to its massive amounts of poison/venom. The only other competitors who have the capacity to defeat a Barioth are Deviljho, Stygian Zinogre, Brachydios and Tigrex. Glacial Agnaktor proves another threat, but not too much as their role in the food chain is different. Gigginox and its subspecies Baleful Gigginox could pose a threat if successfully poisoning/paralyzing Barioth, also rarely a Baggi pack with Great Baggi if it can hit it with its soporific spit though Barioth is agile enough to evade most attacks of these three.
Barioth are accustomed to the Tundra and the polar regions. Their pelts, which are colored pure white, provide camouflage that easily allows them to ambush prey, or even top predators, in the blinding snow. They are in possession of extremely sharp front canines which could pierce through the hides of Popo like soft butter, causing them to bleed readily after the large wound. They have razor-sharp claws which would deal heavy damage to even a foe like Glacial Agnaktor, and could mince anything in a few slices. Those claws and its spikes also aid Barioth in scaling slippery, steep ice canyons and walls, or glaciers. It's squinted eyes are suited to compensate the glare created by the snow's reflection during the day where sunlight reaches the Tundra. Their use of wings exceed the ones of the typical quadrapedal wyverns perhaps could even rival the flying abilities of wyverns like Rathalos or Rathian. Those wings allow them to hover in air for long periods of time, similar to a Rathalos.
Females are viviparous becoming pregnant after mating having 2-3 fur covered young that hide in the caves of the Tundra.
