Lithe and quick, these wyverns have long, barbed tongues capable of lashing out and pulling prey into their jaws. Their attitude is one of aggression if they sense intruders—they attack on sight.

If they can, the barbtongued wyverns start combat by swooping in to attack the PCs before the party can fully enter a room, limiting melee combat options while still being able to take advantage of their reach to strike at foes farther up the stairs or down a hall.
Barbtongued wyverns fight to the death.
