1.  Intro
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So why do we need a FAQ for the fruit tree and white-tailed lizard locations?
Well, because you can't get the map and locator stone until you beat the game
on the given difficulty level you're on.  And even then, the lizard locator is
hardly pin-point, making it difficult to find those suckers sometimes.  So
here's a guide to their exact location, along with the number of fruit on each
fruit tree, just to make that searching go a little easier too.  There are no
real spoilers here, just a location for one of the colossi.  But if you go on
this quest, you'll find lots of the colossi locations anyway.

2.  About White-tailed lizards and fruit trees
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's so great about these lizards and fruits?  If you kill a white-tailed
lizard, then eat the little glowing tail that's left over, your stamina (the
big pink circle) will increase in size.  And every fruit you eat increases your
life gauge.  The life gauge will increase in size until it reaches the other
side of the screen.  I haven't yet hit the limit on stamina, but it's a lot.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.  Tips, tricks, and glitches
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.  How to kill white-tailed lizards.

    Bow - The method you'll be using the most.  If the lizard is on a wall,
          shooting an arrow near it will make it fall and it will be stunned
          for a short time.  That gives you the opportunity to skewer it with
          another arrow.  You'll be able to tell you got a direct hit when the
          arrow sticks in the lizard and doesn't rebound.  Use the R2 button
          to zoom in to give yourself a better shot as well- this helps a lot!

    Sword - If the lizard is running on the ground, the easiest way to kill it
            is with the sword.  Just slash at it until it dies.

    Exploding Arrows - These are fun, especially when the lizard is on the top
          of a save temple running around.  One problem though - they can make
          the lizard invincible!  At least until you leave and come back.
          Also, it may be difficult to find the tail afterwards.

    Agro - You can run over lizards on the ground to kill them too.  It's not
           particularly easy to do, and not many lizards are on the ground to
           start with though.  It actually works best if you slow Agro to a
           walk- running faster doesn't seem to work well.  Also, if Agro is
           standing still (whether you're on him or not) and the lizard runs
           into him, it'll die!

  Hard mode weapons:

    Harpoon of Thunder - Basically the same as the bow, although I think it's
           harder aim and definitely slower.  But it seems to be better at
           hitting the lizards when they're on the ground or sideways than the
           bow.

    Sword of the Sun - Same as the normal sword.  And in case you're wondering,
           aiming at the lizards with the light beam doesn't kill them.

    Queen's Sword - Also the same as the normal sword.

2.  How to get fruit:  Just find one hanging in the tree and shoot it with an
          arrow!

3.  Tips

    a)  Some save temples have 2 or 3 lizards.  These are noted below.  To get
        all the lizards, kill one, then go a little ways away and come back and
        a new one will be there.

    b)  If you ever shoot a lizard and can't get to the tail, or can't find a
        fruit after it drops, just leave the area and come back, and it might
        be back.  I can't guarantee it, as I've had lizard tails disappear on
        me and I can't seem to get them again.

    c)  Some lizards seem to have a trigger area where you need to go before
        they come out of hiding.  So if you don't see one in the area where I
        say there should be one, try climbing around a bit to see if the
        lizard appears.  For example, if I say the lizard is on a wall or
        mound, try climbing up it to see if he pops out.

    d)  The easiest way to kill most lizards is to get off Agro while you're
        still far away, then aim with the bow using R2 and shoot.  Usually the
        lizard won't be moving if you're far enough away, making for an easy
        shot.  If the lizard is on the ground however, you're better off just
        running up and slashing with the sword.

    e)  It is possible to cut off the lizard's tail without killing it.  In
        this case, the lizard detection stone will still show a live lizard, 
        and if you eat the tail and leave, then come back, the lizard will
        still be there, only tailless.  Once you kill him, the detector stone
        won't show him anymore.

3.  Glitches

    a)  If you shoot a lizard with an exploding arrow, you might make it
        invincible.  In this case, you can't kill it, and it usually ignores
        you.  Just walk a little ways away and come back and it'll be back to
        normal.

    b)  The ground detection for fruit isn't great.  Often they will almost 
        completely disappear into the ground.  Keep an eye out for the arrow
        sticking out of the ground, and watch where the fruit falls.  You can 
        still eat it, even if you can't see it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.  Listing of locations by row then column
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Below are the locations for the fruit trees and lizards for each grid cell.
Positions are relative to the cell you are in, so when I say "center," I mean
the center of that cell.  The same goes for western/eastern/etc. edges.

Fruit trees are listed first if they are there, since they are easy to see
generally, and often the lizard locations are referenced against a nearby fruit
tree location.  So it's best to read where everything is in a cell before going
to look for stuff.

Also, fruit trees are usually in groups of two main trees with smaller
surrounding trees.  The fruit map shows two distinct trees in many of these
cases, but I'll be treating them as a single location.

NOTE:  These locations are exactly the same in both normal and hard difficulty.

NOTE 2:  Some areas can't be reached as far as I know, and others are all
ocean.  These are marked accordingly.  Column I is not listed, as I don't think
any of it may be reached.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Row 1


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


B1:  Canít reach.

C1:  Fruit tree 1:  South of the center, right next to the save temple.  4 on
                    the main tree.

     Fruit tree 2:  East of the center, just northeast of the save temple.  3 
                    on the main tree.

     Lizard:        In the center, on the save temple.

D1:  Nothing here.

E1:  Lizard:        West of the center.  Heís on the save temple.  

F1:  Fruit tree:    Southwest of the center.  3 on the main tree, 1 on the
                    southern small tree.

     Lizard:        South of the center.  Due east of the fruit tree, on the
                    east side of the bridge, there is a small rock chimney.
                    The lizard is on and around that.

G1:  Lizard 1:      Southwest of the center.  Heís near the save temple.

     Lizard 2:      Just west of the center.  Go up the ramp to the castle
                    entrance, but donít go in.  Jump onto the wall on the north
                    (the one you face going up the ramp).  The lizard is on the
                    circular tower to the west, or on the outer wall.

H1:  Canít reach.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Row 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B2:  Canít reach.

C2:  Nothing here.

D2:  Lizard 1:      West of the center.  There are several paths in this area.
                    One of them comes from the east (at the center of the cell) 
                    and tees into a north and south path.  Towards the northern
                    path (going to the save temple), there is a small stand of
                    dead trees, and behind them there is a small alcove in the
                    rock wall.  Thatís where the lizard is.  You can also go to
                    the save temple (see Lizard 2), then follow the path south.
                    You'll go through an arch, and the lizard will be on your
                    right immediately after the arch.

     Lizard 2:      North of the center.  On the save temple.

E2:  Nothing here.

F2:  Lizard 1:      South of the center.  On the east side of the bridge, there
                    is a rock chimney.  The lizard is crawling on the northern
                    side.

     Lizard 2:      Just northwest of the center.  Heís on the save temple to
                    the west of the bridge.

G2:  Lizard:        South of the center.  Heís on the ground by the save
                    temple.

H2:  Canít reach.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Row 3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
B3:  Lizard:        Southeast of the center.  On the northern rock wall, near
                    one of the low rock mounds.

C3:  This is where the fish lake is, if youíre wondering...

     Fruit tree:    Just south of the center.  4 on the main tree.

     Lizard:        Halfway between the center and the southern edge.  Just
                    south of the fruit tree.  There is an overhanging rock
                    cliff with two rocks under it, one leaning on the other.
                    The lizard is on those.

D3:  Nothing here.

E3:  Fruit tree 1:  On the eastern edge midpoint.  3 on the main tree, 1 on the
                    southwestern small tree.

     Fruit tree 2:  Slightly west of the eastern edge midpoint.  4 on the main
                    tree.

     Lizard 1:      Southern edge, near the western corner.  Heís on the save
                    temple.

     Lizard 2 (x2): Northwest of the middle.  Two lizards on the save temple
                    here.

F3:  Nothing here.

G3:  Lizard (x3):   West of the center.  Three lizards on the temple, right
                    above the save idol.

H3:  Canít reach.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Row 4
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
B4:  Lizard 1:      Eastern edge, north of the midpoint.  Heís on the save
                    temple.

     Lizard 2 (x3): Southwestern corner.  Three lizards on the save temple.

C4:  Fruit Tree :   Right in the center.  3 on the northern main tree (the
                    smaller one).  2 on the southern main tree (the bigger one)
                    and 1 on the southeastern small tree.

     Lizard 1:      Northeastern corner.  On the save temple.

     Lizard 2:      Right next to the fruit tree.  Heís just to the east,
                    crawling on the ground by the canyon edge.
     
     Lizard 3:      Just north of the center.  Heís on the western rock wall,
                    due northwest of the fruit tree.

D4:  Fruit tree 1:  Just west of the center.  5 on the main tree, 1 fruit on
                    the southern small tree.

     Fruit tree 2:  On the western edge, near the northern corner.  3 on the
                    main tree.

     Lizard 1:      Right next to Fruit Tree 1, on the west side.  Heís on the
                    first rock shelf, crawling on the small mound.

     Lizard 2:      Right next to Fruit Tree 2, on the west side.  Heís on the
                    ground or wall of the rock mound.

E4:  Lizard 1:      Just southeast of the center.  On the save temple or on the
                    ground nearby.

     Lizard 2:      To the southwest of the center.  Heís just running around
                    in the open on the grass near the canyon edge.  You can see
                    him a mile away.

     Lizard 3:      On the northern edge, west of the midpoint.  There is a
                    rocky hill south-by-southeast of the save temple in E3.
                    Heís crawling on it.

F4:  Lizard 1:      In the main temple.  Heís crawling around on or near the
                    hole that Dormin speaks from on the ceiling.  Shoot him
                    down with an arrow (explosive arrows make this easier!).

     Lizard 2:      Middle of the western edge.  There is a rocky hill right on
                    the edge of the canyon due west of the temple.  Heís
                    crawling around the back side, by the canyon.  Walk along
                    the ledge through the brush to get there.  You may need to
                    jump over the tree to spook him out.

G4:  Fruit tree:    Northeast of the center.  6 fruit on the main tree, 2 on
                    the eastern small tree, and 2 on the northern small tree.

     Lizard:        East of the center.  Heís on the save temple.

H4:  Nothing here.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Row 5
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
B5:  Fruit Tree:    Middle of the eastern side.  2 on the southern main tree
                    (the bigger one) and 1 on the southernmost small tree.
                    3 on the northern (smaller) main tree.

     Lizard (x3):   East of the middle.  Three lizards on the ground by the
                    save temple.

C5:  Fruit Tree:    Southern edge, to the east.  2 on the main tree.

     Lizards (x3):  Eastern edge, south of the midpoint.  Three lizards near
                    the save temple.

D5:  Lizard 1:      South-by-southeast of the center.  South of the cliff face,
                    and south-by-southwest of the save temple, there are two
                    smallish rocks by themselves in the middle of the plain.
                    The lizard is on those.  It is directly east of a larger
                    pile of rocks.  NOTE:  IGNORE the lizard detection stone if
                    you have it.  It is VERY far off for this lizard!

     Lizard 2:      East of the center.  Heís on the save temple.

E5:  Fruit tree 1:  Middle eastern edge, across plain from main temple.  4 on
                    main tree, 2 on small southwestern tree.

     Fruit tree 2:  South of the center.  This tree is on the cliff edge above
                    the water, and the fruit will drop all the way down to the
                    water.  There are 2 fruit, both on the main tree.  Note
                    that the water is not deep, so jumping off the cliff is not
                    recommended (although it wonít necessarily kill you).  You 
                    can climb back up using grass on the cliff face, or just
                    walk around (Agro will find you down there).

     Fruit tree 3:  West of the center.  This tree is in the shallow lake below
                    Fruit tree 2.  2 fruit are on the main tree.

     Lizard 1 (x3): Just northeast of the middle.  There are three lizards on
                    the temple here.

     Lizard 2:      South of the center.  Heís crawling around under Fruit tree
                    2.  Kill him before getting the fruit.

F5:  Fruit tree:    Northern edge, midpoint.  Due south of the main temple.  1
                    fruit on the main tree.

G5:  Nothing here.

H5:  Canít reach.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Row 6
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B6:  Canít reach.

C6:  Fruit tree:    Northern edge.  In the far northwestern corner.  4 on the
                    southeastern main tree (the bigger one).  3 on the
                    northwestern (smaller) main tree.

     Lizard:        Northern edge.  Just west of the fruit trees.  Just follow
                    the cliff wall towards the canyon edge.  He is climbing on
                    the wall and ground in the corner.

D6:  Fruit tree:    Northeast of the middle.  3 on the northern (larger) main
                    tree.  3 on the southern (smaller) main tree.

     Lizard 1:      Near the northern edge midpoint.  When right in front of
                    the large temple front, there is a rock mound to the left.
                    The lizard is on that mound.  You may have to climb to the
                    top of the mound to find him.

     Lizard 2:      Northeast of the middle.  Right next to the larger main
                    fruit tree, there is a rock mound.  Heís on that, right by
                    the fruit tree.

E6:  Nothing here.

F6:  Fruit trees:   Near the eastern edge, slightly south of the middle.  4 on
                    the eastern (larger) main tree.  3 on western (smaller)
                    main tree.

     Lizard:        Southeast of the center,  just north and west of the fruit
                    trees.  Go to the little finger of rock on the west side of
                    the fruit trees, then head straight north.  The lizard is
                    on the wall, fairly high up.  Once you can see him, shoot
                    at him to knock him down.  Be sure not to actually hit him,
                    just aim close enough that he falls.  Do this a few times
                    until heís on the ground, then kill him.

                    An easier way may be to go north from the fruit trees to
                    the small ridge that sticks out from the cliff.  You can
                    climb the side of this ridge and work your way higher and
                    further to the west.  Eventually you will come out on a
                    ledge where the lizard is crawling.  Do this if you can't
                    see the lizard from the ground.

G6:  Fruit tree:    Middle eastern edge, 5 fruit on main tree, 1 on small
                    southern tree.

     Lizard 1:      Southern edge, near the western corner.  There is a group
                    of three rocks, one on top of the other two, right by the
                    large bluff line.  Heís on those rocks.

     Lizard 2:      Western edge, near northern corner.  On the ground by the
                    save temple.

H6:  Fruit tree:    Just east of the center.  3 on the northern (larger) main
                    tree.  3 on the southern (smaller) main tree, and 2 on the
                    small tree to the west of that.

     Lizard 1:      Just north of the southern edge midpoint.  There is a large
                    bay cut into the ocean cliff.  Just north of this is a flat
                    area, with a rock wall to the north.  The lizard is on the
                    wall.

     Lizard 2:      In the center.  Heís on the save temple.

     Lizard 3:      Just east of the center.  On the ocean side of the larger,
                    northern main fruit tree, there is a small ledge where the
                    lizard is.  He will also crawl up to the level of the trees
                    (which is preferable).  If you jump down to the ledge,
                    youíll have to jump to the north to the lower area there
                    (which is risky).

     Lizard 4:      Northern edge, near the eastern corner.  Go as far north
                    and east as you can, out onto a point.  There are lots of
                    regular lizards here, but the easternmost one should have a
                    white tail.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Row 7
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
B7:  Ocean.

C7:  Ocean.

D7:  Fruit trees:   Northwestern corner.  6 on the southern (larger) main tree.
                    1 on the eastern small tree (south group), and 1 on the 
                    southern small tree (southern group).  1 on the northern
                    (smaller) main tree.

     Lizard 1:      Middle of the area.  Heís climbing on the rock wall to the
                    south (bordering the ocean cliff).  Itís the largest piece
                    of wall between the path to the save temple and an opening
                    to see the ocean.

     Lizard 2:      South of the middle.  On the save temple.  He tends to be
                    near the top.

E7:  This region is especially rocky, with lots of hills and cliffs, making it
     especially difficult to find lizards, even with the detection stone.

     Fruit trees:   West of the middle.  4 on the western (larger) main tree.
                    3 on the eastern (smaller) main tree, and 1 on the
                    southwestern small tree.

     Lizard 1:      Midpoint of the southern edge.  Due southeast of the fruit
                    trees, there is a rocky hill standing by itself.  Climb up
                    a couple levels of the rock on the northwestern side to
                    find the lizard.

     Lizard 2:      West of the center.  Due northwest of the fruit trees there
                    is a small rock shelf.  The lizard is on the southern end
                    of the shelf, on the ground right by where you can walk up 
                    to the top.

     Lizard 3:      Southeast of the middle.  East by southeast of the fruit
                    trees, there is a hill with two rock chimneys on top of it.
                    The lizard is on the western (larger) chimney.

F7:  Lizard 1:      West of the middle.  Heís on the ground by the save temple.

     Lizard 2:      Between the northwestern corner and the middle.  Heís on
                    the cliff side, and may be hiding behind a small rounded
                    boulder at the foot of the cliff.  On the map, it is right
                    at the point where the cliff starts to turn north.

     Lizard 3:      Just northwest of the center.  Go east until you can get on
                    top of the cliff, then follow the edge west until it
                    dead-ends into a shadowed recess.  The lizard is on the
                    wall in the recess.

     Lizard 4:      Due north of the center.  As you come up around the eastern
                    cliff edge (the same as for lizard 3), look north to the
                    mountain.  There is a small V-shape formed by shadows in
                    the rock face.  Head straight towards that V to find a
                    small area behind the rock front.  The lizard is there.

     Lizard 5:      East of the center, three-quarters of the way to the
                    eastern edge.  There is a small rock hill on a grassy hill
                    that the lizard is crawling on.  There are three rocky
                    hills in the immediate region, this one is the
                    northwestern-most one.

G7:  Lizard 1:      Southern edge, by the eastern corner.  Heís on the save
                    temple.

     Lizard 2:      Southern edge, west of the midpoint.  There is a
                    Stonehenge-like structure of two stones on top of four
                    others out in the middle of the plain.  The lizard is on
                    that.

     Lizard 3:      North by northeast of the middle.  Go north to the cliff
                    face and look for a shadowed crevice you can walk into,
                    where youíll find the lizard.

     Lizard 4:      Northeast of the middle.  Go east and north around the
                    cliff until you can climb on top of it.  Then follow the
                    edge to the southeastern point.  There is a small alcove
                    there where the lizard is.

H7:  Lizard 1:      West of the center.  There is a plateau that can be climbed
                    at one spot on the west.  Follow the plateau to the
                    southeast;  the lizard is at the end.  There are several
                    such plateaus in the area- 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).

     Lizard 2:      Northwest of the center.  There is a plateau on the north
                    side of the large rock spire with a small spire in front of
                    it.  There are lots of regular lizards here, but the
                    white-tailed one is on a small wall that is the farthest
                    north on the plateau.

Row 8
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
B8:  Ocean.

C8:  Ocean.

D8:  Ocean.

E8:  Lizard:        Just east of the middle, close to the northern edge.  In
                    this region, there is only one spot where there is a break
                    in the rock wall bordering the ocean.  There is a hill in
                    the break, right at the edge of the cliff.  The lizard is
                    on top of the hill.  There is lichen to help get to the
                    top.

F8:  Lizard 1:      Northern edge, halfway between the midpoint and the
                    northwestern corner.  Heís on a flat section of the rock
                    cliff, just east of where the cliff jogs slightly south,
                    and should be fairly easy to see.

     Lizard 2 (x3): Just north of the middle.  You canít get here until you
                    have to fight the 16th colossus.  When you do, the three
                    lizards are on the ground by the temple.

G8:  Fruit trees:   Northeastern corner (just south of the G7 save temple).  3
                    on the western (larger) main tree, 1 on the small tree
                    south of the western main tree.  6 on the eastern (smaller)
                    main tree.

     Lizard:        Northwest of the center.  Just before the southern rock
                    cliff ends on the east side, there is an arch that leads to
                    an ocean cliff.  The lizard is in the area to the right
                    (the west) when you get through the arch.


H8:  Ocean.

6.  Forbidden Fruit (SPOILER ALERT!)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In addition to the normal fruit you can find in the game, there is another kind
you can find, although it's a little harder.  There is a garden inside the main
temple (above the normal area) that can be reached with some creative climbing
and a fairly large stamina gauge.  I won't go into the details of how to get
there, you can find that information elsewhere.

Anyway, in the garden you'll find quite a bit of fruit on the trees there.
It's been termed "forbidden fruit" because it has the interesting effect of
significantly decreasing the size of both your life gauge and your stamina
gauge.

There are a total of 48 fruit in the garden by my count, although that could be
low.  Many of the fruit are very hard to see.  If you eat all of these with a
full life gauge (all the way across the screen), your life bar will be reduced
to just over the level you start at in the game.  Your stamina gauge will also
be lowered a large amount, although I wasn't maxed in stamina when I ate the
fruit.
