Animaux venimeux et venins

TO most of us the term “venomous animal” suggests a snake, a wasp, a spider, a scorpion, a centipede—perhaps also a toad, a fish or two, or a jelly-fish. Readers of this book, however, will learn that venomous animals are to be met with freely in all the phyla of the animal kingdom, except such sequestered or unobtrusive groups as Tunicata, Polyzoa, Brachiopoda, and sponges—although even the harmless necessary sponge in its native haunts may consort with a vicious sea-anemone.
