The beaded lizard has the important distinction of being the only known venomous lizard alongside its cousin the Gila monster. Their long bodies and flat, wide heads are covered in hard scales. Grooved teeth and venom glands located on the lower jawbones allow for quick venom delivery, letting the venom pass from the glands through a channel to the roots of their grooved teeth directly into the bite wound of their prey.
