The Scaly Truffle is a Hardmode mount-summoning item. When used, it summons a Pigron Mount that allows the player to fly for a limited time, and run faster on land. It is obtained by fishing in the cavern layer of an Ice biome overlapping a Hallow, Corruption, or Crimson biome in Hardmode.

Highlighted area is where fishing can yield a Scaly Truffle (Snow+Cavern+Crimson).
