This lizard lives in trees and has suction cups on its toes for climbing even wet vertical surfaces. Like gila monsters, it stores fat in its tail. Unlike gila monsters, it also has spines to deter predators. Its powerful jaws can crack open nuts or chew through bark to get at grubs. They are also useful in defense.
