    Wikipedia : " Slow lorises have a toxic bite, a trait rare among mammals and unique to lorisid primates. The toxin is obtained by licking a gland on their arm, and the secretion is activated by mixing with saliva. Their toxic bite is a deterrent to predators, and the toxin is also applied to the fur during grooming as a form of protection for their infants. The secretion from the arm contains a chemical related to cat allergen, but may be augmented by secondary toxins from the diet in wild individuals."

    Yep, then they use their lower front teeth which are slanted slightly forward to deliver the venom.

    I hope the ones in these pictures are happy, they're too often bought illegally by people to keep as pets and are mistreated.
