Characteristics

Extremely agile, especially on the ground, this obsidian-furred flying wyvern moves with explosive burst of speed.

Useful Info

Nargacuga's speed dulls when exhausted, so luring it into turf wars with other monsters is effective. Take care when setting traps, as it will destroy pitfalls when not enraged.
