  • Tigerstripe Zamtrios is a subspecies of Zamtrios that evolved to the harsh Dede Desert.
    • The Guild are looking to discover Zamite living in the Dede Desert to prove that the Tigerstripe Zamtrios really are subspecies.
  • Tigerstripe Zamtrios primarily live near areas where an oasis is in the Dede Desert. They use the oases to get water for many of their abilities such as inflating themselves and to store said water for themselves.
  • The Tigerstripe Zamtrios gets title, Tiger Shark, due to its orange tiger-like stripes. These stripes help it camouflage in its environment.
  • Tigerstripe Zamtrios has been drawing a lot of attention from both the public and the Guild due to it possibly being the first Amphibian seen in the Old World and its colors.

To deflate itself, it can breath these fluids out of its mouth to deflate itself and use these fluids as a long range weapon.
