Lizards were scaly reptilian animals that came in a variety of sizes, colors, and patterns.[note 1]

DescriptionEdit

Lizards had a moderately elongated body, a tail that tapered down from their body width, and two pairs of legs held outward from the body.[3] They were non-venomous usually palm-sized[4][5] to two feet (sixty centimeters) in length, depending on species.[2]

EcologyEdit

Lizards were most abundant in warm climates with forested or jungle terrain,[2] but lizards could be found most anywhere on land or underground except where very cold.[note 1]

VarietiesEdit

These varieties of lizard were known to exist in the Realms:

Bharang 
A fast-moving insectivore, reddish in color, palm-sized, native to the rocky hills near Delzimmer in southeast Faerûn. Caught and used in food called scaletail.[4][5]
Klonthaer 
A slow-moving insectivore, dusty brown in color, hand-sized, native to the rocky hills near Delzimmer in southeast Faerûn. Caught and used in food called scaletail.[4][5]

Larger, More Dangerous LizardsEdit

These do not match the description given above in some manner, but are listed here for convenience.

Monitor lizard 
Charmed by yuan-ti to patrol lairs.[6]
Riding lizard 
Used as a mount by drow and other intelligent races of the Underdark.[7]
Shocker lizard 
Small and magical, they could deliver a nasty jolt. Possible familiar.[8][9][10]

NotesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 Lizards are mundane animals brought from the real world into the world of Faerûn, and as such, they are generally not described in any detail in sourcebooks—readers must rely on their real-world knowledge. However, dangerous, challenging, and/or fantastical lizards will likely have their own page on the wiki.
