Desert Lizards are large Slayer monsters found in the Kharidian Desert, and are mainly around the south-east where it says lizards on the map (north of Nardah, east of Pollnivneach), near fairy ring code D•L•Q. The easiest route to get there, is by taking a magic carpet ride to the temples of Uzer, then heading south and slightly west. Alternatively, players with access to the fairy rings will find fairy ring code D•L•Q much faster. They require level 22 Slayer to kill, and can be aggressive to lower level players. Ice coolers are required to finish them (can be used when the lizard's health is 4 and below), which can be bought from any Slayer Master. The cooler will be destroyed when used, so multiple coolers are necessary for Slayer trips. The lizards are found in areas affected by desert heat, so players are advised to bring a water source (like waterskins) to avoid the negative effects of the heat.

For those who have access to the fairy rings you can easily refill waterskins by re-entering Zanaris, there's a fountain just north upon entering.

Desert lizards can be assigned as a Slayer task by Turael, Mazchna, Chaeldar, and Vannaka. Although the task says, "Desert Lizard", you don't necessarily have to kill just Desert Lizards, killing any lizard in Al Kharid will go towards your slayer task.

The final blow cannot be dealt by using Ancient Magicks ice spells.

If you have over level 40 defense, there is no need to bring food, as they drop kebabs very often and don't hit very hard. Just bring a few waterskins.
