I am in Australia, where Gila monsters don't occur, but I was in Arizona a few years ago on business and my host took me to meet a guy who had several Gila monsters in his home!

He held one so I could touch it. He said the bite is not deadly but extremely painful for at least a day afterwards. And they are apparently also a source of Salmonella as they eat raw eggs.

Amazing creatures, and beautiful but best treated with caution!
