Venomous not poisonous is what these remarkable animals are. Otherwise great present
Edgar Moreno
Dislike, until the title gets fixed. They are venomous not poisonous.

Venomous😱 Such a stupid mistake
Perry Vincent
This was such a great educational video. My homeschooled daughter was learning about reptiles and lizards in particular, and she asked if any were poisonous. Your video helped clear that up and so much more. Thank you so much!
Edgar Moreno
They are not poisonous, they are venomous. There is a big difference. Same with snakes. Most "poisonous" snakes really are venomous. I think only one or a few are actually poisonous.

Actually, until only a couple years ago we thought that only Gila's and Mexican Beaded Lizards were the only species of venomous lizards. Little did we know there's actually over 100 species of living lizard species that actively use venom. And just to let people know, yes Komodo Dragons do have over 80 types off bacteria in there saliva, but they do also possess and use venom. This was all found out and proven by a team of researchers from the University of Melbourne, Australia that was led by Brian Fry. It was there that they swabbed saliva from numerous species of lizards (mostly Monitor Lizards) and found the same proteins and enzymes that are found within snake venom, along with finding venom glands within the lizards as well.

Actually, Fry does not use the correct terminology when it comes to venom. The two only lizard species that do contain venom are the Gila, and Mexican Beaded Lizards. Fry's studies have been proven wrong, by the real experts in the field.

Yay lizards

I can vouch that Gila's make very good pets. They rarely bite if handled with care and like to sleep. My friend has one as a pet. :-)
