Gila Monster basic information

A full grown Gila Monster measures between 18 and 24 inches and has a very thick tail, especially at the base. Its face is black, but the rest of the lizard is beautifully colored with pink, yellow, orange, or red accents over bead-like, rounded scales. The color is seen as bands, spots, or blotches over the basic black coloration and may extend onto the tail. Usually the tail has thick black bands. The Gila Monster's teeth have grooves that help to conduct the poison that it exudes from its lower jaw into the item it bites, through capillary action. The Gila Monster's body is compact and powerful. The head is blunt and the legs are short, and the lower jaw is very strong.
