Permafrost Silethos and its common relative are of the Fanged Wyvern class. This monster class includes Zinogre, Stygian Zinogre, and Komodon.
Permafrost Silethos are exclusively found in harsh, cold areas such as the Tundra, the Snowy Mountains, the Frozen Seaway, and the Polar Sea.
Similarly to regular Silethos, Permafrost Silethos are an invasive species of unknown origin.
Permafrost Silethos share the same ecological role as their relatives, asserting themselves as apex predators with little to no competition. They feast on the likes of Popo, Bullfango, and Anteka and even eat lesser predators such as Zamite, Giaprey and their Giadrome leader, Baggi and their Great Baggi alpha male, Lagombi, and Pokara.
Despite their ferocious and fearsome disposition, they do have to compete with monsters like Zamtrios, Khezu, Red Khezu, Gigginox, Baleful Gigginox, Barioth, Jade Barroth, Deviljho, Brachydios, Stygian Zinogre, Glacial Agnaktor, Tigrex, Tidal Najarala, Anorupatisu, Giaorugu, Pokaradon, and Elder Dragons such as Kushala Daora. The massive Gamuto is also a potential threat. Despite the tough competition, Permafrost Silethos can and will prove itself to be more than a threat to these predators.
Unlike the flint claws and teeth of its common counterpart, Permafrost has fangs and claws made out of ice that will never melt. This is caused by a special fluid in the Wyvern's body that keeps the ice at freezing temperature to prevent it from melting. These claws and teeth are said to inflict wounds that become affected by frostbite.
Permafrost Silethos are known to exhibit the same behaviors as standard Silethos, from hunting habits to breeding behaviors to purposely challenging and fighting other monsters.
