 Dragon Lizards are large gold quadrupedal lizards that live within the Os-Mine Hills. Their eggs were once highly prized as 'dragons' eggs' and sold as trinkets to people visiting Del.[1]


Secrets of DeltoraEdit


Dragon Lizard's could be found in the Os-Mine Hills.

Doran encountered several Dragon Lizards during his travels through the Os-Mine Hills and recorded them in his field guide, Secrets of Deltora.[1]


Dragon Lizards inhabit the Os-Mine Hills in Topaz territory. They are often found among rocks of foothills and in valley caves at higher levels.[1]


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.[1]


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.[1]


Dragon Lizards eat only insects, birds and small snakes.[1] Butter Moths are relished by the Lizards.
