A Hightail Lizard on a tree in LoZ: BotW.

The Hightail Lizard is a animal in the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

You can hunt it, and once you kill it and pick it up it becomes an item that can be placed in your inventory.


A lizard found throughout Hyrule. It's a bit slow to react at times, but if given a chance to escape, it will dart off quickly. Cook it with monster parts for a speed-boosting elixir.
