Dark Sun: Grave Burden
In the broken crags and caves of the barrens lives the timid baazrag. The baazrag’s face is protected by a bony covering that reaches down on either side of the head and across the nose, with holes for the creature’s nostrils and eyes. The mouth and lower jaw are not protected below the bony covering. The beast’s humped back is covered with a hard, natural armor that protects the animal, especially the fluid storage sack just beneath the shell. Its four legs are comparatively frail but are adequate for darting from shelter to shelter around its rocky home. The tail of the Baazrag is about 3 feet long. Newborns are red-brown, green, yellow, or orange, but the color fades gradually to a sandy gray at old age.
