Gila monsters have a different way of using their venom. They do not inject their venom like snakes. They
have poison glands which are modified salivary glands. Gila monsters bite hard, leaving a wound 1/2 inch deep. The venom then
empties in a fleshy groove on the teeth, then into the wound. Their jaws are like a vise grip and they hang on tight to let
the venom flow into the wound. The Gila monster may even chew or tear the flsh to penetrate the poison further.
