Mildly venomous animals

43 species

Mildly venomous animals produce venom, which they use to kill or disable prey, defend themselves from predators or conspecifics, or in agonistic encounters. Venom is common among mammals and much more common in other vertebrates such as reptiles (e.g. venomous snakes) and fish (e.g. stonefish). There are only a few species of venomous amphibians; certain salamanders can extrude sharp venom-tipped ribs.
