I don’t know what it’s like in America but in the UK you need a license under the danegrous animals act... we’ve just been doing legislation at college.

i think enyone considering one would reolize they are venomos. i would support ne one that wanted one ( besides small children) they are such beautiful lizards. I have worked with them and love them to death and if they were legal where i live id be breeding them.

I can "legally" have one in Montana, they don’t really have venomous laws here. I can also "legally" get a crocodile if I wanted to.

thats bc theyre rear fanged. they are notlike front fanged snakes which bite and inject venom, Helodermas chew their venom into their food. If you get bitten, what ull worry about first is their pit bull like jaw strength and the venom later if at all. But, they are dangerous and should be considered possible pets by only very experienced herpers.

i had one for about 3 months i found it on the side of the road here in arizona during rainny season you can find them but this one was small and skinny so me and my friend and his uncle picked it up nursed it back to health and let it go. it was a very cool lizard that if i was legal to own i would want one. we feed it pinkys when it wasnt stronge enought to move much we should use tongs and move it in front of its face and it would grab it. than once it could move on its own for more than a few steps we would give it rat pups and it was really fun to watch him them.

actually if you handle your gila monster from birth and take proper care of it, they can be quite tame and affectionate. My local pet shop manager is a herptologist and has one and its quite the playful little thing.

isnt there a law in bc being put into action in 09 where you cant have any reptile over a certain size?

you will be able to keep any reptile you already own but cannot get them after the law is put into action.

I read it on one of these forums.

venomous reptiles are not allowed in canada...there was a law put out in the late 1990’s supposedly permits are not even released anymore. Only for zoos.

Gila monsters are my favorite animal, and I have been wanting one for a very long time. I have done my research and whatnot, and what Herpster said is true, if you hold them from a baby (when they cant envenomate you through tough leather gloves), they will tame down and become even friendly. A friend of mine had one that wasn’t even held that much, and was a yearling that didn’t even try to bite. Pretty much, if you wild catch them, they are more likely to be aggressive, but since I know many people captive breeding them now, it is easier to tame them down. T

That is my input lol
