Gila Monster! Live & Up Close – Gila River, Arizona

1 min read

Live footage of a Gila monster along the Gila River in early June at Gila Box Riparian National Conservation Area near Safford, Arizona. While hiking along the bank of the Gila River I suddenly came face to face with a Gila monster. Fun fact: The Gila monster is one of only 2 poisonous lizards in the whole world. Of course that fact won’t be so fun if you happen to be bitten by one. Luckily this monster didn’t have the appetite to eat me alive, and I escaped without a scratch.
