Gila monsters. by Monster-Boar Gila monsters. by Monster-Boar


The Gila monster is a species of venomous lizard native to
the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. A heavy,
slow-moving lizard, up to 2.0 ft long, the Gila monster is the only
venomous lizard native to the United States and one of only two
known species of venomous lizards in North America. Though the
Gila monster is venomous, its sluggish nature means that it
represents little threat to humans. However, it has earned a
fearsome reputation and is sometimes killed by hikers and
homeowners despite being protected by state law in Arizona
and Nevada.

Conservation status: Near threatened.
