Ocadian PitFiend    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Desert)

Ephemeralstability wrote:
The ochre sands stretch for miles around. Something kicks up the dust. It’s a yak. A desert-yak. It ambles slowly, nuzzling the ground for the low-growing shrubs. The ranger freezes. “Stay very still,” he warns. “Don’t move at all.” “What is it?” you ask, breathlessly. “It’s the most dangerous creature in the whole Ocadian desert. And it’s about to eat that yak…”

Stone Lizards    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Desert)

Large lizards about 5 feet long, nothing about them seems to stand out.
