Venomous lizard with an attitude to match!

Here is a handsome - but poisonous - Gila Monster. It is the largest lizard native to the United States. They spend much of their time in their burrows so it's unusual to see one strolling across a residential patio! It's clear he does not enjoy having his photo taken. Check out the forked tongue.
