Cave lizards are a group of lizards added in dNetHack.
Some drow roles may receive a baby cave lizard as a starting pet. (Prior to the addition of cave lizards these roles received baby crocodiles instead.)
Like dogs and cats in vanilla, the smaller cave lizards grow up into the larger ones as they gain experience.
Eating a corpse of any cave lizard will cure stoning, similar to "normal" lizards.
