Gristlegrim's Monsters Diamond Lizard

The diamond lizard lives in the deserts of western Rhalph and is a fierce predator. It attains a size of seven to nine feet in length and may be two or three feet in height on its wide-sprawling legs. It is as fierce and active as any wolf in the desert heat, but cold weather makes it go dormant and sluggish.

Diamond Lizard by David A. Ullery

The diamond lizard is renowned for the gemlike substance that forms and grows in its forehead--a jewel that looks very much like an uncut diamond. These jewels are prized as wand-stones--they seem to facilitate the casting of magic, and accomplished wizards can store spells within them along with the energy necessary to work those spells. The full grown lizard has a monster rating of 100 to 200.
