One of the few venomous lizard species and the only venomous lizard native to the United States, the Gila monster is a relatively large reptile that’s earned a reputation as being dangerous. However, it’s actually very timid and slow, and is not a threat to humans.
Scientific Name: Heloderma suspectum
Characteristics: The Gila monster gets its name from the Gila river, an area where this massive lizard was once commonly found. Painted by hand and crafted to be as scientifically accurate as possible, this figurine is exceptional for any purpose, including play, display, teaching, and much more.
Size and Color: Gila monsters can easily be identified by their black and pinkish-orange markings, as well as their banded tails and spotted heads. 2.75 inches long and .75 inches tall, our Gila monster model is about as long as a credit card and as tall as a quarter stood upright.
