Though, the defence mechanism can differ, but it still causes serious injury to the victim (prey) or survivor (attacker). Some animals use their claws, sharp teeth or horns and other strong body parts (tail or legs) to shield and defend from the potential danger; others, intimate their opponent with stings, bites or even with a single lethal touch. The term poisonous or venomous animal is generally used to refer the category of animals, which use their poisonous toxins or venom for attack or defence. However, there is a significant difference in the meaning of poison and venom. The former is absorbed by a touch and the later is injected through a bite, sting or stab. Thus, venom containing animals purposely inject their injurious toxins and poisonous animals contain poison in their skin, which is absorbed upon a single touch.
The effect of the venom differs, as it is mainly dependent upon the amount of venom injected and the physical health of the victim. Therefore, venomous animal are active slayer and poisonous animal are passive slayer. Majority of the venoms are highly complex proteins that instantly or slowly deficit nervous system of humans or animals and adversely affect the blood circulation of the victim. Marbled cone snail or conus marmoreus is categorized as the most lethal animal in the world due to its potency of venom, but specific neurotoxins or conotoxins of its unique venom are utilized by the pharmacists to produce drugs, which have the potential to cure terminal pains.
These beautiful tropical and sub tropical species have approximately 700 carnivorous predator kinds and almost eighteen of them cause human envenomation.

This article reveals that bee venom is not only feared but can also do magic within human body. Bee venom is quite useful according to research. Animals and the Myriad Ways They Can Kill or Heal Us With reference to research, it is clear that there are various ways through which animals can heal as well as kill us.
Despite these dangers posed by snakes, medical researchers such as Zoltan Takacs have taken the risk to meet these poisonous animals and the venoms they produce to unravel the significance of the said venoms towards disease treatment in human beings. In seeking an appropriate scope for this study, this paper will attempt to delve deep into the underlying chemistry in which the venoms or poisons produced by snakes work and their significance to humanity, specifically their medicinal value in disease treatment.
This paper explores processing techniques and present modes of venom usage. Moreover, other poisonous animals are also mentioned with reference to the type of venom they extract. Future prospects of research related to animal venom and toxins are also discussed in this paper.
This essay discusses the rights of animals in the modern times. Sadly enough even in the twenty first century, we as humans are not averse to the idea of using live animals for medical research, genetic experimentation, and hunting. As if making concrete jungles upon their natural habitats was not enough we have locked them in zoo's ,made them extinct for their furs and teeth and exploited them for food.The issues regarding animal rights are just one aspect of respect for all the living organisms of Mother Earth.
