A Butler County man was flown to a Dayton hospital this afternoon after he was bitten by a poisonous lizard.
Police in Wayne Townhsip say the man showed up at the firehouse on Jacksonburg Road this afternoon, saying he'd been bitten by his pet lizard. Officials haven't said what kind of lizard the man owned or where the animal is now.

The man was exhibiting symptoms of poisoning and was flown to Miami Valley Hospital. His name and condition are not known.
According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica, there are two kinds of poisonous lizards in the world; the Gila monster and the beaded lizard. Both can deliver fatal doses of poison if the bite is deep enough.

" “I have never been called to attend a case of Gila monster bite, and I don’t want to be. I think a man who is fool enough to get bitten by a Gila monster ought to die. The creature is so sluggish and slow of movement that the victim of its bite is compelled to help largely in order to get bitten.”

Attributes of God-Allah
I believe that my topic is useful and I would like to share my thoughts, THANK YOU.
{{" Say (O Muhammad): "Invoke All=E2h or invoke the Most Beneficent (All=E2h), by whatever name you invoke Him (it is the same), for to Him belong the Best Names. And offer your Sal=E2t (prayer) neither aloud nor in a low voice, but follow a way between. }}, ) Holy Qur'an 17:110 (. Sources of Islam give no less than ninety-nine different attributes to Allah Almighty. The Holy Qur'an refers to Allah as Ar-Rahman (Most Gracious), Ar-Raheem (Most Merciful) and Hakeem (All Wise) among many other names.
God does not take human form:
Many religions at some point believe, directly or indirectly, in the philosophy of anthropomorphism i.e. God is palatable to become a human. Their contention is that God Almighty is so pure and holy to the extent that He is unaware ( It is true that Allah is not like us, but this does not mean that He is unaware of our situations!!!?- I would rather say: is far away) of the hardships, shortcomings and feelings of human beings. In order to set the rules for human beings, He came down to earth as a human. Let us now analyze this argument and see if it stands to reason.Suppose I manufacture a videocassette recorder (VCR). Do I have to become a VCR to know what is good or what is bad for the VCR? What do I do? I write a manual instruction. "In order to watch a video cassette, you should insert the cassette and press on the play button. In order to stop, press on the stop button. If you want to fast forward press on the FF button. Do not drop it from a height or it will get damaged. Do not immerse it in water or it will get ruined".

These manual instructions list the various do=92s and don=92ts for the machine. Similarly, our Lord and Creator, Allah does not need to take the human form so as to know what is good or bad for the human being. He chooses to reveal the manual instructions. The last and final manual instruction that is sent down to the human beings is the Glorious Qur'an whose =91do's=92 and =91don=92ts=92 are mentioned to the hu= man
beings through the Holy Verses.
If you allow me to compare human beings with machines, I would say humans are more complicated than the most complex machines in the world. Even the most advanced computers, which are extremely complex, are pale in comparison to the physical, psychological, genetic, and social factors that affect individuals and collective human life. The more advanced the machine is, the greater the need for its manual instruction is. By the use of the same criteria, don't the human beings require a manual instruction by which it is easy to govern their own lives?
Therefore, Allah does not come down personally to give the manual instruction. He chooses a man amongst men to deliver the message and communicates with him at a higher level through the medium of revelations. Such chosen men are called messengers and prophets of God.
God does not perform ungodly acts:

{{ Surely! All=E2h wrongs not even of the weight of an atom (or a small ant) , but if there is any good (done), He doubles it, and gives from Him a great reward..}},( Holy Qur'an 4:40).
God can be unjust if He chooses to be so, but the moment God does injustice, He ceases to be God.
God does not make mistake:
{{=85 My Lord is neither unaware nor He forgets, ".}},) Holy Qur'an 20:52). The moment God makes a mistake, he ceases to be God. God does not forget:

{{=85 My Lord is neither unaware nor He forgets, ".}},) Holy Qur'an 20:52).

Has anybody sorted out the truth of this story yet?

Recently the CBC science program 'Quirks and Quarks' interviewed a scientist whose group had recently discovered that Komodo dragons have venom glands, and their venom contains (at least) two toxins: one that lowers blood pressure and an anticoagulant. The toxins exacerbate the effects of the massive wounds Komodo dragons inflict on their prey, helping to drop them sooner and closer to the attack location. They also said that contrary to common belief that these animals have very dirty mouths full of rotting meat and bacteria to make their bites more lethal, they actually have rather nice clean teeth.
While smaller monitors are available as pets, most of them are either small and insectivorous or 1-5 kg and specialize in carrion, eggs, large snails and similar small prey. It's conceivable that some of them could also have venom glands, considering that these were missed in their biggest congener for so many years.

But I suspect there's some confusion in the original news report about just what, if anything, bit this guy. I can think of a number of explanations, e.g. it was a psychosomatic reaction because the guy believed that the lizard had a venomous bite, or he was actually bitten by a pet snake but didn't want to say so because they aren't legal in his jurisdiction, or others. AFAIK, Gila monsters are a protected species in the US and it isn't legal to own one not to say that there aren't plenty of people around who don't know or care about such rules, and they're just the kind of yahoos who'd harass one into biting.

There has been severel discoveries about venom in lizards recently. The most well known is probably the bearded dragon, if I remember correctly it has venom similar to that of rattlesnakes, but in very small quantities.

I don't know about other big monitors, I have a 1.5 meter blackthroated monitor, he sometimes bites me in breeding playfulness. Sometimes he puts on a bit too much pressure and makes me bleed, but there is no sign of venom at all, wounds heal just normally, I haven't even got infections from it, seems he has a very clean mouth.

The obvious choice would be a Gila Monster, which is definitely illegal to own in the US, as they are protected. It's possible he had some type of license for breeding or whatnot, but I wouldn't bet a nickel on it.

As to how fast Gila's are, anyone that says they are slow and sluggish has never actually handled one. Generally speaking, if you just watch one walking around without molesting them, yes, they are slow and consertivative in their movements. Bother one and they can be lightening fast and they are definitely inclined to bite when captured. I've handled a couple of them myself when I lived in Tucson and know how fast they can run, if they want, and how quickly they can turn their heads and clamp onto the unsuspecting. And clamp is certainly the right word, as they bite and hold on like vice-grips.
And, no, I've never been bitten by Gila, nor anything else venmous. While I'd have to plead guilty to crazy, I seldom do stupid things. I've handled quite a few venomous snakes as well and have never once come even close to being bitten. I've been chomped on by any number of non-venomous types over the years, and while I don't much like it, it's just scratches. I've captured and relocated copperheads where I live now (I have 13 acres 60 something miles outside of St.

Louis), only because my dogs were city dogs and not at all snake-smart, and I didn't want to see them bitten. Now there's no more dogs and I don't even bother with relocation. I just don't mention them to my wife, who is from the Philippines and definitely does not like snakes. She reminds me of the 'Fat Broad' in the "BC" comics, that furiously beats the snake to death, then runs around in a panic, screaming at the top of her lungs. Surprisingly, she didn't freak out when I had the injured Hognose in our house, so apparently, after 13 years, she is getting used to my..

well, let's be polite and say "eccentrities."
