In-Game Information

MH3U-Jade Barroth Icon
 A subspecies of Barroth found in colder climates. Lacking mud, they coat themselves with snow and ice, which can be flung at perceived threats. They are known for bashing their overgrown crowns into the ice, and subsist primarily on Bnahabra.

Taxonomy

  • Order: Saurischia
  • Suborder: Theropoda
  • Superfamily: Crown Head Wyvern
  • Family: Barroth

Jade Barroth are members of the Brute Wyvern class. Its closest relative is Barroth.

Habitat Range

Jade Barroth have been seen inhabiting the Tundra.

Ecological Niche

Jade Barroth like their Sandy plains relatives feed on insects and Neopterons such as Bnahabra. Jade Barroth are forced to coexist with large predators such as Tigrex, Barioth, Glacial Agnaktor, Stygian Zinogre, Deviljho, Gigginox, Baleful Gigginox, and Brachydios. Each of these predators can be serious threats to a Jade Barroth, but these creatures are in no way shape or form defenseless as they're armed with powerful jaws filled with sharp snaggleteeth, large crowned heads capable of crushing ice with ease, and flattened clubbed tails. Due to being so armed and powerful, most Tundra predators will think twice before attacking a Jade Barroth.

Biological Adaptations

Jade Barroth wears ice and snow on its body by secreting a special mucus known as Frozen Glob. It solidifies once mixed with snow or ice. This mucus can be produced around the tail of some Jade Barroth, covering potential threats in freezing ice. Noticeably, Jade Barroth have a larger crown than their relatives. The reason why is unknown. The claws of Jade Barroth can cause frostbite with just a touch. With some older Jade Barroth, the claws can actually cause severe pain to them as well.

Behavior

Jade Barroth are seemingly smarter than Barroth yet also more aggressive. They've been seen to charge more wildly, send snowballs flying at threats in front of them, and even cracking the very ground with their crowns.
