Slow Lorus

The slow loris might just be the cutest animal on the face of the Earth capable of killing you. When threatened, this baby ewok-like primate secretes a toxin from the side of its elbows. The toxin alone is not powerful enough to kill humans, but this cunning creature has an effective strategy to inflict more harm. When threatened, it will take this toxin into its mouth, which covers its teeth, and its subsequent bite is then powerful enough to create an infection that can result in anaphylactic shock.
