Gila Monster facts: lizards with venom | Animal Fact Files

Gila monsters are the largest native lizards living in the United States. They're also known as some of the only lizards in the world who are venomous, but they don't use this venom for catching prey. Gila monsters are generally considered sluggish animals and may spend months without eating. This is because they're really good at storing energy! Gila monsters live in burrows going so far as to lay their eggs inside of them. Scientific Name: Heloderma suspectum Range: southwestern US and northwestern Mexico Size: 16.7 inches (425mm); 1.3 pounds (600g) Diet: vertebrate eggs and nestlings Lifespan: 20+ years You can learn more on: Twitter - https://twitter.com/animalfactfiles Facebook - https://facebook.com/animalfactfiles --- We always do what we can to be as accurate as possible, but we're only human; if you catch a mistake please let us know and provide a link for verification! --- All images, videos and sound effects used herein are 1) public domain, 2) used under a Creative Commons license, 3) used with the express permission of the copyright holder, or 4) used under the parameters of Fair Use law.
