I know venom is a poison, but I thought the main difference was that venomous requires a delivery system like fangs or other specialized organs, which the plattypus posseses, but also is used for predation, which the plattypus doesn't so simply by default the plattypus is termed poisonous while still not fulfilling the requirements of either, while poisonous is a toxin that is in part or all of the body and usually requires attempted ingestion? Anyway I hadn't seen the solenodons mentioned which should complete the list platties, some shrews, and the solenodons.
