Order:Ichthyosauria - Suborder:Fish Feet Wyvern - Superfamily:Sand Wyvern - Family:Cephalos. Cephadrome is the leader of a pack of Cephalos. Related to Plesioth, a fellow piscine wyvern. Although it can't swim in water as the Plesioth does, it is able to swim in sand.
They are only found in the desert where the sand allows them to swim in it. No other place is suitable for them to inhabit. Although they could live in the Sandy Plains, they may be outcompeted with other sand dwelling monsters such as Nibelsnarf and Delex, who fit a similar role in the ecosystem.
Cephadromes, together with the Cephalos, are among the most common monster in the desert; they aid in balancing the ecology. They feed upon the smaller monsters and herbivores crossing the open desert. However these Piscine Wyverns can easily become prey themselves by larger predators. Cephadrome also do their best to avoid Diablos and Monoblos as the highly aggressive herbivores won't tolerate the predators anywhere near them or their hatchlings and will viciously gore and maul Cephadrome and Cephalos with their horns and tusks. But due to their size they can chase smaller predators such as Gendrome and their packs off their kills and other carcasses.
The Cephadrome, as with the Cephalos, is completely adapted to living in the sand, and as a result would find it simply impossible to live anywhere else. Its body has adapted to be incredibly streamlined and slick, allowing it to swim through the sand incredibly fast.
It is also known for being able to fire a small stream or simply a lump of sand. It is most likely simply gathering some sand in its mouth, mixing it with some saliva then firing it off at high speed. This would be used to deter larger monsters like Diablos, or just to kill prey.
It has extremely sensitive hearing to pinpoint prey while under the sand. However, their excellent hearing can be used against them as they are easily scared out of the sand by a Sonic Bomb. Creature's roars can also shock them out of the sand most noticeably with Diablos and Monoblos the very creatures that hate them.
Their long necks and soft underbellies have less protective scales on them, giving hunters and other monsters a weak-spot to take advantage of.
It is also mentioned that the Cephadrome has black scales. As its "swims" in sand, the sand has stuck to its skin, making its blue scales appear black, a rare color variation is a purple Cephadrome though its still covered in sand and darkened so its impossible to tell common Blue colored ones from Purple.
Cephadrome is very aggressive, however it will assume evasive maneuvers if it senses that the threat is too dangerous. Cephadrome swims in sand to avoid danger, then attacks unexpectedly to startle its foe. It also uses a sand "spray" to attack from a distance. A leader its role may be as a main attacker.
