Team Ico Collection: Shadow of the Colossus Trophies
Endangered Lizards
Killed all shining lizards

There are an infinite amount of lizards crawling around in the game, but only 77 shining lizards. You can easily identify a shining lizard as its tail is white and not black like the rest of its body. Unlike the normal lizards, these ones prefer to hide and so it can be difficult to track them down. This is much easier to do once you beaten the main game and obtained the Lizard Detection Stone from the Time Attacks. You must kill all 77 of the shining lizards in a single playthrough for this trophy.

See the Shining Lizard Guide for specific details.

I tried looking this up because I don't remember shining lizards but gamefaqs has a text guide so kill all the lizards in the guide and see what happens.

Does anyone know if you have to kill all the lizards in one playthrough or not?

Yes, you do need to kill them all in one playthrough. There are 77 total. A save shrine will sometimes hold 2 to 3 of them instead of 1, so keep an eye on that map if you have the Lizard Detection Stone equipped.

Just to clarify for anyone who may be curious: The fruit AND white-tailed lizards WILL re-spawn if you start a new playthrough. Do not try to achieve this trophy unless you know you are going to complete it in one playthrough. Also, I would like to point out that the trophy specifically says "KILL", not necessarily to just eat each white tail from the lizards. I personally didn't want to chance this, so I was VERY sure to kill each one, then eat the tail. And as a little tip: It's a lot easier to kill the lizards with the flash arrows ;)

Can't find 70th White-Tailed Lizard (H7).

"Found west of the middle. There is a plateau that can be climbed on at one spot on the west side of it. Then follow the plateau to the southeast, the lizard will be at the end. There are several such plateaus in this area, just go to the one just south of the tall rock spire with a smaller one in front of it looking from the west to the east."

Please someone take a screenshot or something.

Got it. This lizard (H7) located more south then mark on map.

ADVICE: Try search in radius if you can't see a lizard.

Some of the lizards are not showing up for me, like the one on the very bottom
left near the bridge Agro jumps over. It's such a pain!

I know im really late on this but if anyone is still having trouble getting this -

double check you have all the save shrines, i know it sounds silly but i could have sworn i got every stupid lizard and was so annoyed at the idea of going over the whole damn map again but i quickly realized i missed a save shrine up in B4 or B3 with 3 lizards and luckily those were all i needed, trophy achieved!

This will help you keep track of which lizards you've already killed:

Use this in combination with #9's video guide to make this as painless as it can be.
