Order:Saurischia - Suborder:Bird Feet - Infraorder:Runner Wyvern - Family:Velociprey.
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 predator. They prey mostly on small herbivores such as Kelbi, Mosswine, and occasionally Aptonoth. Velociprey are known for their cunning pack based movements; using the combined efforts of the entire pack, Velociprey can bring down large prey such as Aptonoth. Velociprey are lead by one or more adults known as Velocidrome. These large alpha Velociprey keep dominance over the others. Despite their blue coloration, Velociprey are often very hard to spot. They are adept at lurking in tall grass, waiting for the perfect moment to ambush unsuspecting prey. Alone, 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 could indicate that some other predatory wyverns also prey on Velociprey
Velociprey are very intelligent creatures, using their cunning to formulate relatively complex attack strategies. This ability alone is what has kept their population from being decimated by larger wyverns. Velociprey possess dark, blue-black striped scales, which offer a good degree of camouflage at night, or in dense jungles. The large claws on its rear legs serve as hook allowing them to jump on a running target and attack the neck with their razorsharp fangs without being thrown off.
If a Velociprey is provoked it will often call upon the assistance of other nearby Velociprey to aid it, using weight of numbers to counter the aggressor. Velociprey packs breed relatively often, usually having large nest clusters that must be protected by pack members at all times.
Their hunting territory is of often quite large and can cover multiple area. It also often intersec with foraging territory of larger bird wyverns like Yian Kut-Ku or Hypnocatrice, which can lead to conflict between the two creatures.
They have also been witnessed attacking wounded predators that stray into their nests. As like when a Rathian flees to a nest of Velociprey, the Raptors will try attacking the large wyvern due to the Rathian hunting them.
