Ferrumos is a large, powerful semi aquatic flying wyvern characterized by its massive crocodile like jaws and tusk like fangs, powerful limbs and striking black skin with a light grey underbelly the webbing of its wings are olive in color. The top of its head is tipped with a pair of horn-like projections above the eyes, and its powerful broad and paddle like tail is covered in crocodilian like scutes.
As a pseudowyvern, its wings have evolved into forelegs, allowing it to run at fast speeds. Though it possesses a pair of adequately-developed wings, it is rarely seen flying for long periods of time due to its wings not being as powerful as other Wyverns and it mainly use its wings to help it glide through the water. Ferrumos is known to swap between bipedal and quadrupedal stances when from time to time but tends to use all its limbs in locomotion. Like its relative Tigrex it has powerful set of lungs, unlike its relative however they aren't used to produce loud calls but aid Ferrumos in holding its breath while submerged. The stomach of Ferrumos produces the Dragon Element to help it break down its food, but it can also discharge the dragon energy from its muscles as a form of defense.
Ferrumos can be found in a wide array of habitats as long as it meets two conditions, it needs to be warm and have a decent amount of water for it to lurk within.

Ferrumos are known to thrive in tropical and subtropical areas and tend to shy away from the colder regions of the world but despite this they are a very wide spread species of Flying Wyvern, generally living anywhere that's warm and has water.
Ferrumos are apex predators preying heavily on large herbivorous monsters such as Aptonoth, Larinoth, and Epioth. They can also prey on smaller carnivores like Jaggi and Velociprey. The only real competition this monster faces is from other large apex predators such as the Rath wyverns, Brachydios, Zinogre, and Seregios, but they tend not to target other large predatory monsters because of the risks involved.
