- [Voiceover] This is the Guatemalan Beaded Lizard.
It's bite can be deadly, but we're a larger threat to it
than it is to us.
There are less than 200 of these creatures left in the wild,
making it one of the most endangered lizards in the world.
Their beaded-like skin is adorned
with yellow spots and bands.
They can be found mainly in deserts and dry forests,
but even then their hard to find as they spend
about 70 percent of their lives underground.
Measuring up to a foot and a half when fully grown,
they can pack a serious punch.
They are one of only two lizard species that are venomous.
The venom is in their saliva and it's administered
when they bite their prey.
Unfortunately, this venom also strikes fear among humans,
the biggest threat to these otherwise docile creatures.
Hunting habitat loss and poaching have
forced this phantom lizard to fight for its survival.
This is the Guatemalan Beaded Lizard.
