Beaded Lizard

The Beaded lizard is larger than the Gila monster but has duller coloration. The stripes and spots on its black bumpy skin give this lizard a beaded appearance and its name. When food is scarce, the lizard metabolises fat stored in its tail.

DID YOU KNOW? Although the venom shouldn’t kill a healthy adult human, it does inflict a huge amount of pain 24 hours a day for around 2 weeks. So if bitten you’d probably never go near one again.
