It is a medium sized Bird Wyvern, and it is a little larger than the regular Qurupeco. This small size difference gives it a great advantage compared to the Qurupeco. Like its relative this, creature mainly feeds on fish. Although it can be preyed upon by many monsters, it can also protect itself by calling larger creatures to attack the attackers attacking it, which may end up backfiring on the Crimson Qurupeco, or flee by blinding the monsters near it, by creating a bright flash using its unique wing talons, and flying away.
Crimson Qurupeco share many of the same adaptions as Qurupeco. Unlike Qurupeco, Crimson Qurupeco have crimson and blue-colored feathers, giving them a more exotic appearance. Even the flints of this species is different from its cousin. They have special flints able to generate electricity, when clapped together, along with the ability produce powerful flashes with their flints like Gypceros. Crimson Qurupeco can even roar like Flying Wyverns.
Crimson Qurupeco are more aggressive and larger than its normal relative, which is most likely related to the fact it lives in harsher environments than the original. Much like the green Qurupeco, Crimson Qurupeco uses its mucous to spit on attacks but instead of being more flammable its mucus conducts electricity.
