MH Rise Espinas Characteristics & Locations
Flying Wyverns known for the red spikes on their tough green frame, forming both a means of attack and defense, thus generally keeping foes at bay. As a result, they are often seen sprawled out and relaxing in their domain. Once they sense danger, however, they expand their blood vessels to turn their hide and wing membranes a bright red, and they will run riot with noteworthy brutality. Espinas are notable for this dual nature of theirs—unconcerned by their surroundings to the extent that they sleep openly and often, but also capable of displaying a profoundly savage nature when they feel threatened.
