This Cute Little Animal Actually Has a Toxic Bite! [VIDEO]

YouTube

Okay, I just found another cute animal! You have to see this video! Here is Kinako. She is a Slow Loris. Kinako was born in a Japanese pet shop and she likes to eat rice balls. The Slow Loris is in the primate family, but don’t let those big eyes fool you. The Slow Loris is the only primate that has a poisonous bite!

According to Mother Nature Network:

This animal might look like a harmless, big-eyed baby ewok, but the slow loris is one of the only poisonous mammals in the world. Its subtle nature makes it popular in the illegal pet trade, but unknowing humans should stay clear of its toxin, which is released from the sides of its elbows. When threatened, the loris takes the toxin into its mouth and mixes it with saliva. The animal will also lick its hair to deter predators from attack. The toxin can cause death by anaphylactic shock.

 

Um, alright so maybe I don’t want one…but they sure are cute!
