In the RPG
This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.
Lightning Lizards look much like thunder lizards, although they are of superior size. They also possess abilities beyond what their smaller cousins enjoy. Sparks dance from the great lizard's eyes and its bellow carries over tremendous distances. Travelers have a hard time telling a lightning lizard apart from a thunder lizard, although the distinction becomes clear if they aggravate a lightning lizard into action.
While lightning lizards can swallow opponents, they will not hesitate to use their lightning attack to kill enemies that appear dangerous. Humanoids are normally seen as a threat, as are large predators. Smaller and less threatening animals may be stomped, charged, or simply swallowed. Juveniles gang up, taking different limbs of an animal in each mouth and playing tug-of-war.
