The slow loris is a type of primate. It may appear adorable (it is) but it also has a toxic bite formed by licking a gland in their arm that contains a secretion that mixes with their saliva. Their toxins can be severe to predators. It is also used in grooming the fur of their infants as a form of protection. This beautiful and curious species is sadly classified as "Endangered" on the IUCN Red List.

Slow Lorises are so adorable, but unfortunately they are illegal to own. They are also poisonous! They can secrete a toxin from the sides of their elbows when they feel threatened, and they mix it with their saliva as well as coat their fur with it. It can cause anaphylactic shock!
