- "A lizard found throughout Hyrule. It's a bit slow to react at times, but if given a chance to escape, it will dart off quickly. Cook it with monster parts for a speed-boosting elixir."

A Hightail Lizard is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Link can make a Hasty Elixir which temporarily increases movement speed by cooking it with either monster parts or Guardian Parts. Link can also add other "Hasty" ingredients (like Hot-Footed Frogs or Swift Carrots) to the Hasty Elixir recipe to increase the duration of the "Hasty" effect. Cooking it alone or with other cooking ingredients usually results in the failed food dish Dubious Food.
They are commonly found in both East Necluda and West Necluda regions thus are common all over the Necluda province. However they can also be found, albeit less commonly in other areas such as the Great Plateau. Additionally Beedle will sell them at certain Stables.
Hightail Lizards can be found climbing on trees, crawling on the ground, or by cutting grass. They will flee if they spot Link, though only if Link makes too much noise. Link can sneak up on them by crouch walking or by walking slowly upright. Additionally Sneaky Elixirs, Sneaky Food Dishes, and armor that grants Stealth Up can help Link avoid spooking them. Link can also kill from afar with an Arrow then pick up the defeated lizard.
