I think it’s a kind of drastic ramp-up from easily dodged, harmless bolt to death-bolt. Perhaps some skeletons lying around or other indications of deadliness would be appropriate. But I agree with you in principle.

Yeah. A second warning would have been appropriate. :-/

Ah, raise dead - beautiful spell :) In my case, the player getting himself killed didn’t get along with the player who was the “cleric” type and the god he was trying to kill ruled Death :P

For your case, I’d have done more warning, with more lizards to show that more lizards are more dangerous as they get into larger groups.

Shocker lizards are something of a special case. How many CR 2 monsters, when they band together in numbers, can generate an attack with that kind of damage and (especially) Reflex save? The answer is not many. Basically, this is a case of catching the party unawares because shocker lizards don’t conform to our normal expectations for D&D monsters. I think it is good to surprise the party sometimes, provided the penalty isn’t too high. Shocker lizards definitely have a “gotcha!” ability.
