One of Arizona’s Venomous Creepy Crawlers

The Gila Monster is a species of venomous lizard native to the southwestern United States. A heavy, slow-moving lizard, 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.

I’ve only seen one here, and that was one too many.

    Gads! I did not know AZ had those! They camouflage so well that they’d be difficult to see at a glance.
