Caramel Lizards are one of the new variants of Lizards icon.png Lizard added in the Downpour DLC. They are characterized by their large size, leaping, and ability to spit projectiles.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Caramel Lizards are pale, large and bulky Lizards. Unlike other Lizards, Caramel Lizards have six legs, with the middle pair being slightly shorter. Their bodies may vary in color, but are always pale. Their other colors can vary from pale yellows to dark, desaturated oranges. They have rectangular heads with knobby spikes along the top.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Caramel Lizards are a formidable threat as one of the largest Lizard variants. Despite being unable to climb poles, their leaps make them capable of attacking the Slugcat head.png Slugcat when on poles or elevated platforms. However, Caramel Lizards have difficulty making it over uneven terrain, which can provide an advantage for the player. As with other Lizards, they can be flipped over using Rubbish icon.png Rubbish; though when charging, throwing Rubbish has no effect. They can also be frightened off by the use of Cherrybomb icon.png Cherrybombs. Caramel Lizards take roughly 5-6 Spear icon.png Spears to kill.

Stealth[edit | edit source]

Caramel Lizards, similarly to Green Lizard icon.png Green Lizards, have a line of sight that stays mostly on ground level. This causes them to often stand idle until they notice prey or a threat. Like all other Lizards, they are capable of hearing and investigate noises produced by creatures or items. Once a Caramel Lizard has noticed prey, they become difficult to lose; crawling, avoiding making noise, and avoiding their line of sight can help a player sneak past them.

Evasion[edit | edit source]

Due to their leaping capabilities, Caramel Lizards can be hard to avoid. However, they are slow and clumsy with their attacks, making it easy to avoid them with backflips. When they leap, they become disoriented for a short duration, giving time to move past them. Aiming for high ground or passing through tunnels below them is the most reliable way of avoiding Caramel Lizards. Additionally, they can be baited into leaping off ledges or deeper into a room, away from the player. A less consistent way to evade Caramel Lizards is to put them in a situation in which they have to turn around to get to you, as they can have quite a bit of trouble doing so, especially in pipes.

Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Leaping[edit | edit source]

Caramel Lizards have a special leaping attack, signaled by a short windup in which they hiss before leaping towards their target. This attack allows them to catch creatures on poles, or even reach platforms off ground level. However, this attack is clumsy and inaccurate, and they may hit walls or leap off of ledges. When they miss, they are disoriented for a short amount of time, leaving room for a counter-attack.

Projectile Spit[edit | edit source]

Caramel Lizards, similarly to Red Lizard icon.png Red Lizards, have the ability to launch projectile spit at their prey. While they do not deal damage, these projectiles heavily weigh down whatever they strike while also causing a large amount of knockback. Caramel Lizards must stop moving in order to use these projectiles.

Taming[edit | edit source]

Caramel Lizards have a relatively low taming difficulty, and require only 1-2 feeds. This can be complicated due to their leaping, which can make it more difficult for them to pick up food. Additionally, their large size can also make it more difficult for them to exit shelters.

Once tamed, they attempt to fight off threats to the player like any other lizard. They do not leap to follow the player onto higher terrain, which makes them unsuitable for long journeys, but their durability and loyalty can be helpful in regions with lots of flat terrain.
