The mexican beaded lizard is a large, venomous lizard
that originates in Mexico and Guatemala. I breed and keep the Heloderma
horridum horridum and the Rio Fuerte (Heloderma horridum exasperatum)
types of these lizards.
Average size is between 30-36in in length and 3.5-6lbs.
Lifespan is around 30 years
Their name, beaded lizard, comes from several tiny beads
on their skin called ostioderms
