Alex Ebel’s iconic Nocona Boots ad from the early 1980’s
This ad is what triggered my lifelong fascination with Gila monsters. Created in 1980 by artist Alex Ebel for Nocona Boots.

Started in 1998, Goatsby’s Place is focused on the education, preservation, and responsible private ownership of Gila monsters, venomous lizards of the family Helodermatidae. Although the focus of this site is on the Gila monster, we still have a lot of love and respect for the Mexican beaded lizards. From time to time we offer captive born Gila monsters produced here. Check out our Available page to see what we have in stock.
