A lizard-like reptile native to the Middle East. Dubbs have a long spiked tail used for defense. They can be tamed and made great pets. Also, they're vegiterians, so, they won't bite unless they're REALLY hungry or if you tick 'em off.

Dubb (?), n. [Ar.] Zool.

The Syrian bear. See under Bear.

[Written also dhubb, and dub.]
