Well, I fell behind on my buffer again. Partially because of that one page I just skipped a few weeks back and partially because I've been trying to improve on my style.

Hopefully I can get at least a page or two ahead in this coming week.

Gila facts:
Gila monster bites are almost never fatal. Not something you might expect from an animal that produces a neurotoxin for which there exists no anti-venom. But, unlike a rattlesnake that injects it's venom through hollow fangs, A Gila monster's venom is delivered through grooves in the teeth of it's lower jaw and is slowly worked into the bite by chewing.

If you see one in the wild, don't pick it up and you won't get bitten. If you do get bitten, it's because you A) tried to pick it up or, B) accidentally fell on it.

Well, that answers the question as to whether or not he's a figment. I wonder how big Gila monsters get?

About two feet long.

Marcus' size fluctuates over the course of the story. from a bit over two feet to juvenile size closer to 6 inches. That becomes more relevant later.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to be on the business end of that bite.

The next fight I get into, I am going to pull a mini Marcus from out of my inside jacket pocket and throw it on the face of my enemy.

That's a great plan with no possibility of failure.
