Thanks for visiting

The gila-monster Heloderma suspectum are divided into 2 subspecies, Heloderma suspectum suspectum and Heloderma suspectum cinctum.
According to the last revision of the species, published in 2010, the two subspecies are now degradated to local morphs!

  • Heloderma suspectum suspectum is the reticulated type and is the most common type which lives in the southeastern USA. More specific in Arizona and New Mexico, and down to the northern part of Mexico in the Sonoran dessert.


  • Heloderma suspectum cinctum is the banded type.And is the northern of the two subspecies and lives in the northern Arizona, and in the southern part of Utah and Nevada.

On this site you will find photo's of the Heloderma's what I keep.

There are a few books what I recommoneded. Thats the reason why I didn't put any information on this side.

I hope you like my photo's, if you have any question about the Gila-monster.
Do not hesistate to contact me.

Regards Eric
