Heloderma suspectum - Gila Monster

Heloderma suspectum - Gila Monster

The Gila monster (pronounced /?hi?l?/, HEE-la), Heloderma suspectum, is a species of venomous lizard native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico (but not Baja California). A heavy, slow-moving lizard, up to 60 centimetres (2.0 ft) long, the Gila monster is the only venomous lizard native to the United States, and one of only two known species of venomous lizards in North America, the other being its close relative the beaded lizard (H. horridum).[1] Though the Gila monster is venomous, its slish nature means that it represents little threat to humans. However, it has earned a fearsome reputation, and is often killed by hikers and homeowners, despite being protected by state law in Arizona and Nevada.[2][3]

There are two subspecies of Gila monster: the reticulate Gila monster (H. suspectum suspectum) and the banded Gila monster (H. suspectum cinctum).[2] The reticulate Gila monster lives in the southern region of the Gila monster's range, while the banded Gila monster is a northern subspecies occurring primarily in the Mojave Desert. The reticulate Gila monster tends to have its lighter markings broken up by dark scales, giving it a reticulated pattern, while the banded Gila monster generally has more unbroken bands of lighter scales.[4][5]

The Gila monster has one close living relative, the beaded lizard (H. horridum), as well as many extinct relatives in the Helodermatidae whose evolutionary history may be traced back to the Cretaceous period. The genus Heloderma has existed since the Miocene, when H. texana lived, and fragments of osteoderms from the Gila monster have been found in late Pleistocene (8000-10,000 years ago) deposits near Las Vegas, Nevada. Because the Helodermatids have remained relatively unchanged morphologically, they are occasionally regarded as living fossils.[6] Although the Gila monster appears closely related to the monitor lizards (varanids) of Africa, Asia and Australia, the wide geographical separation and unique features not found in the varanids indicates that the Gila monster is better placed in a separate family.[5]

The name Gila refers to the Gila River Basin in Arizona, where they were once plentiful.[7] Heloderma means "studded skin", from the Ancient Greek words Helos — the head of a nail or stud — and derma, or skin. Suspectum comes from the describer, paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope, who suspected that the lizard might be venomous due to the grooves in the teeth.[

. suspectum is a bulky, sausage-shaped lizard with a length of 30 centimetres (0.98 ft) to 60 centimetres (2.0 ft) and a weight of 1.3 kilograms (2.9 lb) to 2.25 kilograms (5.0 lb).[8] Although smaller than the bearded lizard, which can grow to be a 1 metre (3.3 ft) long,[9] the Gila monster is the largest lizard in the United States.[8] It has a thick tail that is used to store fat, from which it can live off for months, or for years according to several anecdotes. Its tail is proportionately longer than that of the beaded lizard, a trait used to differentiate between the two. Unlike many other lizards, a Gila monster's tail does not autotomize and cannot grow back if broken. The Gila monster also possesses large forefeet and sharp claws, ideal for digging, as well as a thick black tongue, used to smell with the help of a Jacobson's organ.[9]

The Gila monster's scales have the appearance of blue, hot pink, silver, pink, orange, baby blue or yellow beads, laid down in intricate patterns. These beads are small bony plates that form scales, and are known as osteoderms.[10] The colors of its osteoderms are more vivid than those of its close relative, the beaded lizard. The scales on the belly are rectangular rather than rounded. It was the beaded skin of the Gila monster that caught the attention of Native Americans, the designs of which are recreated in Native American art and basketry.[11] The scales are most vivid when the Gila monster is young; as it ages, the colors become paler and more reticulated.[9] The Gila monster sheds its skin in small patches, such that they always seem to be in the process of shedding. Complete molting is thought to occur once per year

The Gila monster feeds primarily on bird and reptile eggs, and occasionally upon small birds, mammals, frogs, lizards, insects, and carrion.[16] The Gila monster eats infrequently (only five to ten times a year in the wild),[17] but when it does feed, it may eat up to one-third of its body mass.[18] It uses its extremely acute sense of smell to locate prey, especially eggs. Its sense of smell is so keen that it can locate and dig up chicken eggs buried 15 centimetres (5.9 in) deep and accurately follow a trail made by rolling an egg.[5]

Prey may be crushed to death if large or eaten alive if small, swallowed head-first and helped down by muscular contractions and neck flexing. Unusually, after food has been swallowed, the Gila monster immediately resumes tongue flicking and search behavior, probably as a result

More quotes from Juliette:

"To put yourself in another's place requires real imagination, but by doing so each Girl Scout will be able to love among others happily."

"Once I showed up at my sister's with a baby rabbit I had bought from some children because its ears were cold. I put the rabbit on a hot water bottle and massaged its ears for quite a while. After all, I knew that all healthy animals had warm ears."

Thin Mint cookies on my Grandma's hand painted China plate of Poppy flowers dated in 1909.

I bought a box of my favorite Girl Scout cookies, the Thin Mints.
When I was a GIrl Scout the cookies were 50 cents.... now they are $3.50.... lol
They only get to keep a very small part of each box sold, but is a good fund raiser.
I used to help sell the cookies when my daughters were both Girl Scouts around the neighborhood and at work.

Original name for Girl Scout Thin Mints was: Cookie Mints
These were introduced as an optional flavor in 1939, the same year that 14 bakeries were licensed by Girl Scouts throughout the country, making it possible for every troop to choose between two or three bakers to place their cookie orders. Today, two licensed bakers supply local Girl Scouts with cookies.

Target stores won't let Girl Scouts sell cookies in front... they are NOT getting my business anymore!!
