In-Game Information

MH3U-Crimson Qurupeco Icon
A subspecies of Qurupeco with vivid crimson plumage and the same aptitude for mimicry and dance. Flints in their wings allow them to generate electricity, which can be discharged as either shocking jolts or intense flashes of light.


  • Order: Saurischia
  • Suborder: Bird Feet
  • Infraorder: Bird Wyvern
  • Superfamily: Voice Bird Wyvern
  • Family: Peco

The Crimson Qurupeco are colorful Bird Wyverns that are Subspecies to the Qurupeco.

Habitat Range

The Crimson Qurupeco inhabits the sub-tropical regions of the Volcano , Deserted Island, and Flooded Forest.

Ecological Niche

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.

Biological Adaptions

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.
