Ginroc Lizard

They. Are. So. Cute! At least when they're babies. I'd keep one as an ayleth.

The ginroc, or 'field lizard,' is an unusual reptile. More intelligent than any other known lizard, the ginroc can be trained for a large number of tasks ranging from personal defense to tracking to farm work. Most often, they are bred and trained to replace the more common ox or horse. As a four-legged, large animal with considerable physical strength, they can be used to plough fields and to pull wagons and heavy goods. Where they differ however, is in their upkeep.   According to scholars, ginrocs are unique among domesticated animals in that they have significant natural mana pools that are replenished easily from ambient mana. Precisely how this ability was developed or how the natural absorption works are still unknown, but the practical benefit is a lower overall upkeep to the owner compared to a comparably-sized animal in addition to greater physical strength and speed (in short bursts). This makes the ginroc well-suited as a hunting animal that can chase down wounded animals or as a herding animal for livestock. Some owners have described them as a 'scaly dog,' but the added benefit of size and a prehensile tail make for a more potent combination than that of the common dog.   Fortunately, the ginroc does not suffer the same difficulty during winter as other varieties of lizard, though they are certainly less active during these months. The current theory is that the ginroc's mana pool is converted into basic pyromancy to maintain warmth during cold winter conditions. Even with this adaptation, ginrocs are far more valuable during the warmer spring and summer months, which is also the most valuable time to have one for the common farmer.
