Gila monsters (Heloderma suspectum), like their cousins the Mexican beaded lizards (Heloderma horridum), are venomous lizards. As such, they are some of the most famous, and the most feared lizards on the planet. They can't possibly be good pets. Right? Clint explores these beautiful, notorious, dangerous lizards to determine if these beautiful lizards deserve their notoriety for being dangerous, and if the Gila monster is the best pet lizard for you.
