The giant thorny lizard is a gigantic version of the thorny lizard (moloch horridus). This creature is capable of reaching 7 feet 6 inches in length, and up to 225 pounds.

In a manner similar to the giant spiny viper, the giant thorny lizard is a brightly-colored creature covered in yellowish-orange scales that are armed with sharp spikes. In a certain way, this creature could what the giant spiny viper would be if it had legs to walk on.

Although the giant thorny lizard is not venomous, it is considered to be a much nastier creature than the spiny viper. The lizard possesses thicker scales and sharper spikes, which are considered bullet-resistant, thus making this creature armored. Its head is also armed with a single, large prominent horn, which it is capable of using as a weapon when regular biting and clawing won't do. But by far the most uncanny of its abilities is the fling charge technique, where the giant thorny lizard will compress itself like a spring then leap forward, horn pointed at the target, in an attempt to charge into the target and deliver a powerful strike.

When facing one of these creatures, make sure that it is in fact a thorny lizard and not a giant spiny viper. Both creatures have similar features, but if it possesses four legs and a prominent horn, it is a lizard and therefore the more dangerous of the two creatures. As it is armored, expanding ammunition will tend to flatten on its body. Thus if you are in a situation where you have to fight one, it is recommended to use FMJ or SAP ammo, although any other type of armor-piercing ammunition will work just as well.
