This large sloth-like lizard is coated in a shaggy mat of green hair from snout to lashing tail. Against foes surrounding it, it remains on all fours, using it's snapping jaws and lashing tail. When fighting a single opponent it will rear up to use it's claws. Those in melee with a balbonisa learn it's hairs are diseased. A successful melee hit either by or against one means a save vs. Poison or become sickened for 1d6 hours, during which time they can move at 50% of their normal speed and are at -2 to hit, while opponents gain a +2 bonus to hit. This disease does not affect other balbonisa. An oddity of balbonisa is their instinct to gather gems to decorate a nest for mating purposes.
