Two variants are knows of this enemy: One is dark green in color with brown stripes along its back and a big, white horn on the front of its snout (absent from the real-life counterpart). the second variant is red in color, with blue stripes along its back.
They walk and jump on two legs and have a frill made out of skin around their necks, a distinctive characteristic of the chlamydosaurus kingii frilled-neck lizard.
They re-appear in Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure, this time with a completely different look, reminiscent of the cyborg variant, but entirely organic.
- The Japanese name for the green ones is 緑トカゲ Midori Tokage, lit. Green Lizard, while the red one's Japanese name is 赤トカゲ Aka Tokage, lit. Red Lizard.
In the first game, they can be encountered in the ancient city ruins and can be seen hopping from a spot to another making enormous leaps. The only difference between the two variants is the fact that the red variant is much faster than the green variant. They can only be defeated by jumping on them.
In Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure, they walk around back and forth and can only be defeated by a slide attack.
