Gizzizzy - Iris Compiet

Gizzizzy were quadrupedal amphibians native to Sog and the Endless Forest, characterized by their brown and orange skin, stubby feet and long tails. Often the targets of larger predators, their survival was ensured when the female evolved to lay multiple clutches of eggs per trine to ensure the population remained robust. The birthing process involved the mothers pushing small translucent eggs through their skin. Upon hatching, the offspring (which often numbered in the dozens) would cling to the backs of both parents until they felt brave enough to drop off and venture out on their own.[1]

At least one specimen was kept in the Chamber of Life, where it broke from captivity and took part in killing skekTek and releasing Kira from the Draining Chair.[2]
