Banded Gila Monster C8_13_4_6
Banded Gila MonsterThe sire is a very striking light clean pink animal with a brown/black background. Notice how uniform the banding is with line-straight edges—an unusual trait. He has been a very reliable breeder. The dam has also been a consistent breeder over many years. She has a nice clean pink color on a nearly solid black background.

Photo Color Accuracy
Each animal sale photo has been color calibrated to a standard to accurately represent the color of each animal. Consumer computer monitors aren't consistently good at accurately displaying colors. The color on your monitor may not be accurate, but each image is individually calibrated to be accurate.
Gila Monster Color
All Gila monsters change color as they mature. Babies are yellow or cream on black. As they mature the light color will develop colors ranging from orange to pink. It's not possible to predict the adult color based on the color of the baby. The color of the parents will give some indication of what color to expect as the baby matures, but there can be significant variation in the mature color even in a single clutch. It usually takes several years for the adult color to fully develop.
Gila Monster Sex
It is not possible to accurately determine the sex of immature Gila monsters from their appearance. Some baby Gila monsters show characteristics of their sex at hatching or as they start to grow. However, this is not a consistently reliable way to determine sex. I may give my impression of sex in the description, but consider this just an educated guess.
As a Gila monster approaches maturity it can be reliably sexed by ultrasound. If the animal for sale is old enough to sex with ultrasound, I'll state the sex for certain and guarantee that it is accurate.
