Kodo are massive reptiles with thick leathery skin that roam the plains and deserts of Kalimdor.

Most kodo have a large horn that sprouts from their nose, and some are even covered in thick woolly hair. Kodo range across central Kalimdor, but are particularly prevalent in Mulgore, where the rolling grassy plains are particularly suited to their omnivorous nature. Wild kodo are normally herbivorous, however, and will not attack unless threatened.

The giant, slow-moving kodo of the Barrens are one of the most intriguing species of Kalimdor. Though gentle and ponderous by nature, these mighty beasts become fierce enemies when threatened or attacked. Many kodo hold a special bond with the benevolent tauren race. It is said that some rare kodo are bound to the spirits of the sky and storm.

The tauren have legends about those they call lightning lizards, salamanders, thunder lizards, and storm walkers. Whether or not these behemoths actually have supernatural powers remains to be seen. If one is discovered, it should be approached with extreme caution. It is said that these thunder lizards are much more hostile than their more common cousins and will attack without provocation.
