Good morning carolcass :k .

It is not highlander but your thinking is in the right direction (geographical) for the first part of the alias.

Alias

A Giant Lizard
Who is heavily Armoured
Who could also be a Giant Dragon
A Golden Eagle
Or a Ptarmigan, Mountain Hare or Stoat
But you will no longer find a Lynx, Brown Bear, Wolf, Elk or Walrus

No Carolcass it is not monsterfish :( the first three clues refer to a reptile found in Sub-Saharan Africa. The other three clues refer to the geographical place you are thinking of but think from there.

Good morning GG-ers :D

Alias

A Giant Lizard - The Sungazer (Smaug giganteus, syn. Cordylus giganteus), also known as the giant girdled lizard or giant dragon lizard, is the largest species of the Cordylidae, a family of lizards from Sub-Saharan Africa.

Who is heavily Armoured - The Sungazer is a heavily armoured species, with a typical snout–to-vent length of 15–18 cm

Who could also be a Giant Dragon - The Sungazer is also known as the giant girdled lizard or giant dragon lizard

A Golden Eagle – Found in Scotland

Or a Ptarmigan, Mountain Hare or Stoat – Scottish fauna

But you will no longer find a Lynx, Brown Bear, Wolf, Elk or Walrus – These animals once found in Scotland were hunted to extinction in historic times.

= Scottish Sungazer which is the alias of the forum member.

Thank you GG-ers :gflower:
