Mythozoology: is a Wyvern a Dragon?
Now, I’m a hobby mythozoologist, so I take this question very seriously. In my experience, the wyvern has always been a distant cousin (that is common evolutionary ancestors) of the dragon, but has not been classified as a type of dragon. The newest WR, has been classified as a dragon even though it is clearly a wyvern.
I would say that the decision was made to classify it as a dragon, probably so the players could use their already existing awesome vs dragon gear and not have to worry about getting “vs dragons distant cousin gear”.
As for the mythozoological perspective there has always been distinct differences between the two creatures.
The two that come to mind at this time are…
1) Dragons have 4 arms/legs + wings, while wyverns only have 2 legs + wings
2) Wyverns aren’t as treasure obsessed as dragons (but many still enjoy having a stack of gold)
your own thoughts or knowledges…?
