Order:Saurischia- Suborder:Dragon Feet- Family:Ukanlos. The Ukanlos is related to the Akantor of the volcano, although these two creature have taken extremely different courses of evolution.
It is evident that Ukanlos can only thrive in sub-zero areas such as the Snowy Mountains, particularly in the Snowy Mountains Peak. In the New World they live in the Tundra and Polar Zone. However, it is quite possible that it will be capable of moving from one mountain range to another. The cause of the limited habitat is that the massive creature would most likely die from overheating itself. However this may not be a possibility as the creature is immensely large and would require large amounts of food to sustain inner-body heat.
Further observations have confirmed that the Ukanlos is not a unique individual, as more have been sighted after it was initially discovered. Some scholars theorize that the isolation of their habitat and behavior may have kept the Guild from noticing their presence and strongly advise further research, as avalanches similar to the ones known to awaken Ukanlos have become distressingly more common as of late.
Ukanlos are apex predators that can virtually feed on anything they'd want. Animals like Popo, Bulldrome, and Anteka are common prey. However being indiscriminate feeders Ukanlos will also prey on other predators such as Tigrex, Barioth, Khezu, Blangonga, Abiorugu, Doragyurosu, and even Elder Dragons such as Kirin or Kushala Daora are fair game for these behemoths.
Ukanlos has grown a tough streamlined carapace to "swim" though the ice. Ukanlos may eat the ice and absorb minerals, however this beast is rather large so the amount of ice it would have to eat would be huge. Also, this creature may be capable of swimming as seen when it moves though the ice. It is also capable of expelling ice to attack anything foolish enough to attempt to harm it. In order to survive the weather this creature may have a large layer of fat underneath its hard shell. This layer of flesh is visible underneath its forearms, showing a light-blue underflesh. This beast also hibernate for vast periods of time to survive after feeding.
Generally, upon noticing hunters, the beast will attack and attempt to kill them. Even in a party of four hunters it will relentlessly attack anyone not choosing a single target. However, it is unknown how it acts when not hunting, but it is theorised to be quite timid and docile.
