Mandoos are large animals that look like a cross between a rodent and a lizard. They eat and get most of their water from desert-growing algae and ambient moisture in the air. They have large, padded feet and broad, low-slung bodies. They make excellent (albiet slow) beasts of burden due to their docile nature and low resource consumption. A Mandoo can be bought or sold in nearly any human or halfling town to the north of the Xanzilisa, and be found roaming wild throughout the canyons and outcroppings nearby.
