Snow Pantauros are one of the monsters who are seated at the end of the food chain in their icy domain. They are very agile yet they hit hard at the same time. They ambush Popo, Anteka, and Bullfango. Other competitors who have the capacity to defeat a Snow Pantauros are, Barioth, Stygian Zinogre, Brachydios, Gigginox, Baleful Gigginox, Anorupatisu, Giaorugu, Zamtrios, Deviljho, Tigrex, and Glacial Agnaktor. Gammoth are also a threat.
Snow Pantauros are more accustomed to the Arctic Ridge and Tundra. Their pelts, which are now colored white, provide camouflage that easily allows them to ambush prey, or even top predators, in the snow. They have razor-sharp claws which would deal heavy damage to a foe such as Glacial Agnaktor, and could mince anything in a few slices. These claws and its hooves also aid Snow Pantauros in climbing slippery, steep ice canyons and glaciers. Their icy powder breath comes from water stored in a special organ that freezes the water and converts it to snow. This snow is then expelled at high speeds equivalent to a blizzard.
Snow Pantauros are just as temperamental as their relatives. During breeding season, male Snow Pantauros will show off their impressive horns to attract mates. After a female Snow Pantauros has mated it will find a nice secluded cave to raise their offspring in. Females often have 2-3 fur covered young that hide in the caves of their home until they are old enough to fend for themselves. Sometimes males will stay with the females they mated with, providing food and protection for his mate and young. On other occasions, they simply leave the females to raise the young by herself.
