-Lizard tyrants wield vicious tridents in melee which inflict 5d4 points of damage. If their to-hit roll result is 18-20, they have impaled their victim and inflict double normal damage. These weapons are unwieldy and anyone except a Lizard Tyrant that attempts to use them in combat will suffer the standard untrained penalty and cannot impale victims. ​  ​Other than the exceptions noted, lizard tyrants are identical to normal lizard men in all other respects. ​+Lizard tyrants wield vicious tridents in melee which inflict 5d4 points of damage.

- Giant ant lions are large, predatory insects that live in rocky desert areas. They construct tapered pits (around 60' diameter) that often (50% chance) appear like cave mouths. Any creature entering their pit may (1 in 2 chance per round) trip and slide further down the rocky, loose sides to the bottom where the ant lion buries itself awaiting the prey. It will burst out of the soil and attack with its two large mandibles. If it successfully hits, the victim will be held fast and cannot escape unless the ant lion is killed. Each round the mandibles will automatically inflict 5d4 points of damage to trapped prey. +Giant ant lions are large, predatory insects that live in rocky desert areas.

- In melee, a greater basilisk attacks with it's two front claws and a bite. It's claws drip with a weak poison (+ to Saving Throws) and it's breath is also poisonous (all within a 5' radius must Save vs. Poison at +2 or die). It's most terrible attack is its petrifying gaze effective up to 50' away. Attempts to reflect the greater basilisk'​s gaze will fail unless within 10' of the beast and have a 10% of success per round. ​+In melee, a greater basilisk attacks with it's two front claws and a bite.
