we have 6 heloderma s. cinctums (banded gilas) and a trio of heloderma s. suspectums (reticulated gilas). Not yet bred them but hopefully soon. H.s.c. for a hatchling depending on pattern and colour, H.s.s depending on pattern and colour. I saw one H.s.c. hatchling almost entirely pink with fine bands and a completely pink head with no black markings

The Gila monster is one of only a handful of venomous lizards in the world. Others include the similar-looking Mexican beaded lizards, as well as iguanas and monitor lizards. Its venom is a fairly mild neurotoxin. And though a Gila bite is extremely painful, none has resulted in a reported human death.
