    Yes that is what they are called here as well. I always wondered how they got that name.

    Nobody could ever explain that to me either!
    Maybe not only are they poisonous, maybe they make thunder as well! :rolleyes:


    Well my curiosity got the better of me. It seems that the source of the name was the lizard being credited as the maker of strange loud noises that came from the rocks.

    What kind of teeth does the Collard lizard have?
    I thought they might be like an Iguana's, since I couldnt really see any teeth in the pic., I assumed they resembled an Ig's teeth :D
    However I will heed your warning. Thanks Merlin :)

    Similar to an iguana but much smaller. Smaller lizard, smaller teeth! :D
    I never had a collared bite that brought blood. They just clamped down and held on! :eek:
    Did have some pressure though!

    I have had collared bite with blood, not gushin, but dots, much like a 2-3 foot snake bite. Much more pressure tho, I would rather be bitten by a 5 or 6 foot snake.
