Special Traits

  • Undead Nature. A giant lizard skeleton doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.

Actions

  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage.
  • Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 3) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 13). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the giant lizard skeleton can’t use its tail attack on another target. If the target’s check to escape the grapple succeeds by 5 or more, the giant lizard skeleton’s tail breaks and it can’t use its tail again until it finishes a long rest.
