You can’t directly send AVAX from Binance to Metamask.
Doing this operation will send your AVAX on Binance Smart Chain ( BSC ) as BEP20 token.
To solve this, you have to add BSC RPC in Metamask => Add custom RPC and mention the following :
Network Name : BSC
RPC URL : https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org
ChainID: 0x38, 56 in decimal (if 56 doesn’t work, try 0x38)
Block Explorer: https://bscscan.com
Then on BSC RPC add token, custom token and mention the following token contract ( AVAX on BSC )
You should now see your AVAX.
To get them back on Binance, you will have to send some BNB on your metamask address ( to pay the fees )
Then on Binance, click deposit -> AVAX -> BEP20 ( BSC ) => it will mention you a 0x like address
!!! Don’t send them back to binance using AVAX network !!! as your tokens are currently on BSC
Finally, to get your AVAX on Avalanche => Withdraw -> Avax -> Avax network ( this time ) and send them to the X-AVAX1 address of your Avalanche wallet ( https://wallet.avax.network )
In the wallet, cross chain X -> C then you can send your AVAX on metamask.

ALWAYS DO YOUR FIRST TRANSACTION with a small amount of tokens in case of mistakes, it will avoid you lot of troubles
