Primates can be poisonous

A new species of slow loris, a nocturnal primate, which was recently discovered in Borneo – is poisonous. The extremely cute-looking animal is more closely related to monkeys than apes and boasts a deadly weapon. It can defend itself by rubbing its hands in its armpits, where a slow-acting but potent toxin is produced, and then rubbing it on its sharp teeth. The toxin is also found in insects, which form part of the slow loris’s diet.
