Description

Gila Monster
Heloderma suspectum
Catalina,
Pima Co., Arizona
8 March 2009

In March 2009 I was with some friends in Catalina, AZ near Tucson. One of them was a federal wildlife officer and we were taking some photos of a Gila Monster that had been confiscated from someone that had it illegally. I don't remember all the details, but the Gila Monster was to be released near this location at some point in the near future. So, I had the opportunity to take some shots of this beautiful animal, but it was a captive at this time. It had originally been captured in the wild nearby, however.
