From Yahoo: There are only 2 species of lizards that actually have venom. The Gila Monster and its very close relative the Mexican Beaded Lizard. Some people think Komodo Dragons are venomous but they just develop so much bacteria in their mouths that whatever they bite will eventually die from infection.

None of these have a red head.

I believe that is a broad-headed skink or broadhead skink and no, they are not.

Redheaded Lizards (Broad Headed Skinks) are not poisonous but cats usually love to catch lizards and these will sometimes make them a little sick but not for very long - cats recover quickly.

I live in Florida and see these along with several other types of lizards many times a day and have never had a problem with any of them.

Here is link to an interesting article if you would like to know more about these curious creatures. The second link is to similar questions and answers posted in the past on ThriftyFun.
