Shocker lizards were magical beasts that possess the ability to produce electrical effects from their body.[1]

Description[]

Shocker lizards tended to be small and blue in color.

Behavior[]

These creatures were largely similar to mundane lizards in attitude.[1]

Combat[]

Shocker lizards preferred to be left alone. If an intruder entered their territory, the lizard warned off the intruder with a light stunning shock. If the intruder did not leave, the shocker lizard produced large, deadlier electrical discharges. Shocker lizards could work together to produce even more powerful discharges.[1]

History[]

In 1374 DR, two shocker lizards in the Shadow Swamp on the Plane of Shadow followed a shambling mound back to its den in the Shadowscale Warren. The two species formed a mutualist relationship: they gained the shambler's protection and ate its leavings, while their electric shocks bolstered and healed the shambler.[2]

Ecology[]

Diet[]

Shocker lizards were a carnivorous species that typically preyed upon small animals, insects, and fish.[1]

Habitats[]

In south Faerûn, shocker lizards could be found in the Forest of Amtar, around Lake Halruaa, in the Great Swamp of Rethild,[3] and in the Lhespenbog.[4]
