Being a variety of toad born of an egg like to a giant jewel. It lives hidden between the rocks, feeding with its long tongue on any creature that approaches, large or small. The adhesive disks on its hands and feet allow it to suspend its body in all manner of precarious locations, enabling it to ambush prey from the most unexpected hiding places. As such, its victims often spend their dying moments in a state of acute bemusement rather than fear.
The giant eggs of the Iguion are a prized rarity. Only the fanciest of the marketers of fancy foodstuffs carry this rare sort of frogspawn, and fewer still are those who know its true value. Why? Because this knowledge is so prized that if two who are in the know happen to meet, a fight to the death ensues, and the world is soon short one... or sometimes two who knew.
Iguion comes from "iguana." [view·edit·purge]Iguana is a genus of herbivorous lizards native to tropical areas of Mexico, Central America, several islands in Polynesia and the Caribbean. Two species are included: the green iguana widespread throughout its range and a popular pet, and the Lesser Antillean iguana native to the Lesser Antilles and endangered due to habitat destruction. The word "iguana" is derived from the original Taino name for the species, iwana.
