The Giargacuga is a Flying Wyvern that inhabits sub-zero environments and is an Origin Species of Nargacuga and Barioth.
Giargacugas are long and slender Flying Wyverns covered in sharp yet thin white scales that may be mistaken as hairs, it has a skeleton similar to that of Nargacuga and Barioth, with dented blades on each wing and an amber beak, its eyes are blue and glow when enraged, leaving a trail much like Nargacuga's.
It has strong legs which it uses to leap and hold onto walls and ceilings at will, its tail is as long as its body, and it can be moved with such freedom that it can also be rolled like a Chameleos' tail, at the sides of these tails it has strong spikes similar to those of Barioth.
In its throat resides an underdeveloped sac that can freeze the hydrogen in the air and use it to spit ice-elemental attacks.

Giargacugas are rare sights, of every 5 reports, 4 end up being Barioths.
Giargacuga's scales and blades are among the sharpest natural objects known in nature, with these, the Giargas dominate close quarters fights and make up for their limited range by being able to throw shed scales from its tail much like Nargacuga.
The Giargacuga is the maximum predator in its territory, being able to surpass the invasive Deviljho and the Elder Dragons Kushala Daora and Toa Tesukatora. Some Savage Deviljho corpses have been found, completely mutilated with Giargacuga scales across their bodies, these scales are imbued with the Ice Element.
During its signature attack, Blade Stunt, it will jump, leap and spin across the entire area while throwing sharp scales and attacking hunters with its wingblades, at such speeds that it leaves a ghost trail behind itself, ending in a jump and a drill-dive towards any living target. Using its sac it can spit chunks of ice and snow at the hunters.
When enraged, it will roar and all of its scales will stand up, increasing attack power, some of its attacks while enraged can inflict Frostbite.
