Gold in colour and as large as a calf, Dragon Lizards are sometimes mistaken for dragon young. Covered in scales and spikes on its head and back, the lizard has sharp teeth and four feet, ending in 3 claws.
Dragon Lizards are harmless when left alone. However, they will bite and scratch humans if threatened. When it is time to lay, the Dragon Lizard will build a nest of pebbles, laying eggs no larger than duck eggs.
