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. 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 to avoid the negative effects of the heat.

Desert lizards can be assigned as a Slayer task by Turael, Mazchna, Chaeldar, and Vannaka.

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