News from the Natural World: Mexican Beaded Lizard heads to America for a better way of life.
News from the Natural World: Mexican Beaded Lizard has made its way to America for a better way of life. The Mexican Beaded Lizard is a truly special kind of lizard. Alongside the infamous Gila Monster, they are the only lizards known to have evolved an overt venom delivery system. They live in the deserts of Mexico and Southern Guatemala. It is covered in white/yellow stripes and spots which run across its dark black bumpy skin. They also have a think, fleshy tail that is shorter than its body. In addition, it has short powerful limbs and a stout stocky disposition. The Mexican Beaded Lizard spends almost its entire life, up to 98% of it, underground. But something recently awoke the venomous lizard and they have begun an unprecedented migration. The Platypus first began to hear reports of a huge campaign and movement emerging across the lizard community. They were waiting until the dead of the night and crossing the border away from the beady eyes of bright white spotlights. We managed to secure an interview with the leader of the lizards, a chap called Manny. Manny said that many of his reptilian brothers and sisters were leaving in search of a better way of life. They were looking for job opportunities, a better standard of living and access to education for their offspring. They had heard that north of Mexico a great orange lizard by the name of Trump was promising a better way of life for all. But Manny began to sadden as his story continued.
