In-Game Information

MHFU-Velociprey Icon
Aggressive, carnivorous monsters that often travel in packs. Even a master hunter should take care not to become surrounded! Wide ranging, they are found in many different areas, such as the jungle or forest and hills.


Taxonomy

  • Order: Saurischia
  • Suborder: Bird Feet
  • Infraorder: Runner Wyvern
  • Family: Velociprey

Velociprey are a part of the Bird Wyvern classification. This species is led by the Velocidrome.

Habitat Range

Velociprey are known to inhabit the Forest and Hills, Old Desert, Jungle, Great Forest, Everwood, Primal Forest, Verdant Hills, Tide Island, Sky Corridor, and Dawnwind Valley.

Ecological Niche

Despite being a predatory species, Velociprey are low in the food chain. They may even become food for other large species of wyvern, although their speed and agility will discourage most of larger predators. They prey mostly on small herbivores such as Kelbi, Mosswine, and occasionally Aptonoth. Velociprey are weak, but together they pose a credible threat to hunters or even small wyverns. Rathian sometimes preys on Velociprey to feed her young, this indicates that some other predatory wyverns also prey on Velociprey for food.

Biological Adaptations

From their highly developed brains, Velociprey can come up with a hunting plan quite quickly. The Velociprey will use a range of calls to talk to each other in order to cooperate properly. They usually surround prey, giving it little ways to escape, and attack by using their foot claws and hand claws. If their is a large pack, they can take down prey bigger than young Aptonoth. Inside of a Velociprey's beak is number of sharp, thin teeth. Though the teeth look delicate, they are surprisingly hard to break. Even bombs can't break a Velociprey's teeth. Velociprey have powerful legs for used running at high speeds after prey with claws used to injure prey.

Behavior

Velociprey can be fairly dangerous when together in pack. Occasionally, Velociprey packs are known to raid villages for food and will sometimes raid villages if food is scarce.
