Is a frilled-neck lizard venomous?

Do they bite?


Answer by  George44 (32)

Frilled-neck lizards do not belong to any of the known venomous lizard families; however, any animal may bite in self defense, especially if it feels frightened while you are handling it. Frilled lizards are not particularly vicious, and most small lizards are gentle pets. If you treat the animal kindly, it will have no reason to bite you.

No, frilled-neck lizards are not venomous, nor are they poisonous. They do however, bite if provoke enough, or their threat display does not work.
