Dyuragaua (デュラガウア) is an Ice-element Flying Wyvern featured in the Monster Hunter Frontier Season 8.0. The Dyuragaua was discovered making a nest in the Old Tower ruins, suggesting it may have avoided human contact for a long time. It is only because of the recent discovery of its Nest Hole that Dyuragaua was forced out of hiding.
Dyuragaua has the typical body structure of a "Pseudowyvern," and is most likely related to similar monsters such as the Tigrex and Nargacuga. Its iridescent hide is covered with cyan and turquoise scales, with deep orange ridges, spikes, claws and horns. The tail terminates in a "club" covered with rounded bumps or knobs in a staggered pattern.
When enraged, Dyuragaua's tail, arms, and face will be clad in ice. Sharp icy spikes will also protrude out of its tail. When it uses ice attacks, it can inflict a new status effect called "Frostbite" (凍傷). It can do a flip attack which smashes its tail into the ground, causing a shock-wave of Sleep. The tail cannot be cut, but the spikes on it can be broken (only in rage).

It should also be noted that HC Dyuragaua is capable of these attacks at any rank.
