The Ruby Basarios is a never before seen subspecies of Basarios recently discovered in Val Habar's region. It is unknown what the Ruby Basarios is but, some believe its a subspecies of Basarios, while others believe its a normal Basarios that has consumed a large number of crystals found within the Everwood.
The Ruby Basarios can only be found living in the Everwood, and it has been found living along side the common Basarios in this area.
Like the common Basarios it is somewhat low on the food chain. These wyverns feed mostly on ores and minerals, especially the large red/pink crystals found in the Everwood. In order to supplement their diet the wyverns will also feed on small prey, like Neopterons and carrion. Ruby Basarios are large and armored enough to intimidate predators like Great Jaggi, Velocidrome and Seltas. But larger predators like Brachydios, Deviljho and Teostra are considered to be serious threats.
Adorning the bodies of these flying wyverns are large pink crystals that are found in the Everwood. The crystals eventually grow on the body of the Basarios due to the wyvern constantly feeding on them. The crystals are used for enhanced camoflauge and for defense. When threatened, Ruby Basarios will shake the crystals off its body in order to damage foes that come to close to it.
Just like the Basarios, the Ruby Basarios are quite calm and peaceful until threatened. Ruby Basarios can turn aggressive when they need to protect themselves.
