okay so itis a weird wyvern

If it has no outer lips then how does it keep its mouth moisturized?

Weirdness aside...It is a Wyvern by definition. Great Work! ;)

Historically "wyvern" is just another name for dragon, but the D&D folks decided to make it a different creature.

Actually in traditional medieval folklore dragons were generally four-limbed like this. Something I didn't even know until recently. Wyverns were differentiated by being smaller, with a barbed tail, venomous bite, and inability to breathe fire. Dragons were much larger (far bigger than the guy in this picture), generally had an arrowhead-tipped tail, and breathed fire. Six-limbed dragons actually weren't standard dragon fare until Tolkien created Smaug in the 40's.

This picture is a wyvern by the traditional definition in appearance. Number of eyes and shape of the jaw weren't specified. Just trying to help you learn something new.

And these days, wyverns are often referred to as being among the most colossal breeds of dragons. Weird how things change :)

I don't think one can make actual rules for all fantasy series for what a dragon or a wyvern is. For example the dragons in Game of Thrones have two legs and two wings, but they're still known as dragons. Same with Skyrim and Reign of Fire for example. Even Smaug in the second and third Hobbit films has only two legs. While in the Dragon Age series wyverns have four legs as they are featured in an expansion of the second game and will be in Dragon Age Inquisition.
