|A small cold-blooded creature, partial to warmth.|
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 a fairy ring (dlq). The easiest route to get there is by taking a magic carpet ride to the temples of Uzer, then heading south-west. Alternatively, players with access to the fairy rings will find the code dlq 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 hitpoints are 4 or 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.
Those with access to the fairy ring system can easily refill waterskins by re-entering Zanaris, there's a fountain just north upon entering.
Desert lizards can be assigned as a Slayer assignment 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 small lizards also count as kills for the desert lizards if assigned as a Slayer task.
