Found this guy in my front yard yesterday. First time I've seen one in the wild and I am completely shocked at how fast they can move. I always pictured them as extremely slow and sluggish creatures but that is not the case! Anyway not quite the pose I would like or the lighting but I wanted to share something that is rarely seen in the wild and probably not seen by a lot of the members of this board. The Gila Monster is a poisonous lizard.
