Myxosioth (ムコトトス, Mukototosu) is a Piscine Wyvern.

Physiology

Myxosioth is a large, white, bipedal Piscine Wyvern that has webbed feet, a paddle-like tail, and large fins lined with small spikes. It also features similar fins on its head and back. Instead of teeth, Myxosioth possesses two pairs of sharp bony plates which form a beak-like structure. The fins have black webbing with white spots. An orange band runs through the eye with two other bands on the tail, one at the base and the other right behind the crescent-shaped tail fin.

Abilities

Inside its body Myxosioth forms a mucus that it secretes through its skin. This mucus serves as protection against predators. This mucus also functions similarly to the slime mold found on Brachydios and becomes explosive once attached to anything that isn't the Piscine Wyvern. It can also spit this mucus from its mouth. The spikes that line its wings are filled with potent toxins. This poison is also present in its saliva, allowing it to envenom prey with its bite.

Behavior

Myxosioth is a particularly docile monster, but will respond with aggression when provoked or threatened.

Habitat

Myxosioth is commonly found in the Jungle, Old Jungle, Deserted Island, Flooded Forest, and the Primal Forest.

Ecology

Information

Large fish-like wyverns that secret a slimy mucus through their skin for protection. This mucus becomes volatile once adhered to another organism. They are generally docile and prefer to feed on algae and coral.

Taxonomy

  • Order: Piscine Wyvern
  • Suborder: Fish Feet Wyvern
  • Superfamily: Mucus Wyvern
  • Family: Myxosioth

Myxosioth is a Pisicne Wyvern and is related to Plesioth, Cephadrome, and Lavasioth.

Habitat Range

Within the Old World Myxosioth have been seen in living in the Jungle, Old Jungle, and Primal Forest. The Piscine Wyverns also inhabit the Deserted Island and Flooded Forest of the New World.

Ecological Niche

Myxosioth eat a wide variety of aquatic organisms, and they are not necessarily herbivores. Algae, fish, and polyps such as coral are major parts of the wyvern's diet as their feeding activity is important for the production of their mucus. As such they coexist with predators such as Plesioth, Lagiacrus, Gobul, Royal Ludroth, Daimyo Hermitaur, Rathalos, Rathian, Nargacuga, Najarala, Brachydios, Deviljho, and Zinogre.

Biological Adaptations

Inside its body Myxosioth forms a mucus that it secretes through its skin. This mucus serves as protection against predators. Prior to going to sleep, Myxosioth extrude mucus from its mouth, forming a protective cocoon that envelops the wyvern, presumably hiding its scent from potential predators. This mucus envelope also acts as an early warning system, allowing the Piscine WYvern to flee when it detects predators disturbing the membrane. However, it functions similarly to the slime mold found on Brachydios and becomes explosive once attached to anything that isn't the Piscine Wyvern. It can also spit this mucus from its mouth. The mucus is made as a by product of its food when it eats. The spikes that line its wings are filled with potent toxins. This poison is also present in its saliva, allowing it to envenom prey with its bite. The shearing plates on their jaws grow continuously, replacing material worn away by feeding.

Behavior

Myxosioth is a particularly docile monster, but will respond with aggression when provoked or threatened. Myxosioth will confront attackers from their aquatic home and will even come on land to fight hunters if they are angered enough.

Notes

  • Myxosioth's design motif was the parrotfish, which are known to secrete a mucus cocoon, particularly at night when they sleep.
  • When in Rage Mode, Myxosioth will huff white smoke and a layer of flowing slime will appear on its body, similar to the lava flow on Lavasioth's body.
    • This causes some of its attacks to inflict Blastblight.
  • It can inflict Poison with its bite and wing strikes.
  • When low on stamina it will fail to spit slime balls.
