Velociprey are a very common species of Raptorial Bird Wyvern. They have blue scales with black stripes, and a dull red crest on their heads. These carnivorous monsters travel in packs and inhabit many different environments.
A pack of Velociprey is lead by a large, aggressive alpha Velociprey known as the Velocidrome.
An experienced hunter should have no problems dealing with a pack of Velociprey, though a hunter unfamiliar with them will have some trouble with their swift movements and quick attacks. Velociprey are capable of leaping great distances, making them difficult to flee from, especially when delivering eggs and large ores. They will, on occasion, be slashed in two when struck by a strong weapon whilst in midair. When this happens, the Velociprey will disappear when it lands, and cannot be carved.
