Gila Monster

About Gila Monster

The Gila Monster has bright orange and black colors. These colors warn other animals to stay away from it because it is poisonous. They are one of only two poisonous lizards in the world. The other one is the Mexican Beaded Lizard. Its tail stores fat for times when food is scarce the same way a camel’s hump does.

It kills animals by gripping them with its jaws and injecting poison as it chews. The Gila Monster’s bite is very painful to humans but humans will not die from its bite.
