LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - It’s a birthday party for a monster - a gila monster to be exact.

The Potter Park Zoo is celebrating the 30th birthday of a Gila monster named Old Man.

Old Man is pretty long-lived for his species. The record is 36-years in captivity.

Gila monsters are the only venomous lizards in the United States. They’re native to the southwestern U.S.

The birthday celebrations will take place on Saturday and Sunday.
