Dire Monitor Lizards are anywhere between 8-16 long, weigh well in excess of 500 pounds, and are viciously agressive.


Dire Monitor Lizards have extremely vicious jaws which they use to tear and rend their prey.

Skills: A monitor lizard has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

In forested or overgrown areas, Dire Monitor Lizards gain a Hide bonus of +4.
