: Hello everyone,
: I was just going through the different forums, when I came to this forum. Gila... I checked some of the posts, and looked at some of the pictures, and yes this is a site for keeping Gila monsters.
: I thought they were poisonous? THis is legal to keep these animals? Or do you need a special permit, to carry these cool creatures?
: If someone could educate me that would be great,
It is only legal to keep captive bred specimens. Wild gilas are strictly protected. Laws vary by state...I live in FL and here you need the same venomous permit that you would need to own any venomous snake. This permit requires 1,000 hours of documented venomous handling experience.
