The cute Slow Loris that has made its way in photos around the internet is one of the very rare animals that is Venomous
- the only venomous primate.
It licks and sucks the venom out of a venom gland on its elbow and mixes it with saliva to give it a poisonous bite
In the animal trade the Slow Loris' teeth are removed with clippers or wire cutters to prevent biting future customers.SHARE:
