Lizard-lion

From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Jump to: navigation, search

A lizard-lion is a reptile native to the bogs of the Neck. They resemble partially submerged logs floating still in the water.[1] They live in the water, in slow streams and deep swamps,[2] and have teeth like daggers.[3] As there are crocodiles that live in the Zamoyos in Sothoryos,[4] lizard-lions may be similar to alligators.

According to songs the ancient Marsh Kings rode lizard-lions.[5] The sigil of House Reed depicts a black lizard-lion on grey-green.[6]
