Few animals have had a greater fascination for man than the Gila monster (Heloderma suspectum) and the Mexican beaded lizard (Heloderma horridum). The classic works of Bogert and Del Campo (1956) and Loeb (1913) and some 400 additional pieces of literature have been examined and put in a very readable form herein by the authors. Gila Monster considers the lizard's natural history, including descriptions, fossil records, distribution, temperature and moisture regulation, reproduction, longevity, enemies, and population status; its relationship to humans and folklore; its venom; bites on humans and other animals, bite treatment, and a section on references, among other related topics. After studying this animal for almost 50 years.
