The Gila Monster

The Gila Monster is one of only two known venomous lizards and can be found in southwest USA and Mexico. It’s venomous bite is different than most animals, in that most of its teeth have grooves that conduct the flow of the poison.

Also, rather than an injecting bite, the venom flows from these grooves and is injected through chewing. They are rarely fatal to humans.
