You can post as many links as you want, but fact is your links support what I tell you.

In layman's terms, poison is consumed, venom HAS to be injected to be considered venom, and toxins cover everything else (its broad because not everything fits into poison or venom). All venom is a toxin but not all toxins are venom. Does that make sense?

My hognose are the same as yours right? Mine dont inject toxins through hollow fangs. Do yours? While they might have glands, the problem with your use of the words is the way that TOXIN gets delivered. And in the case of hognose, its through the gums that the secrete toxins. The grooves in the fangs help enable the TOXIN to enter the victim. Totally different delivery system. Not venomous but toxic. Remember venom is a specific way of delivering a poison to a victim.

Im not trying to fight with anyone or cause problems. Your reply came off as very condescending, directed at me, when in fact I was nice in my post. And I didnt disagree with anything you said. I only disagreed with some terminology that some of you misuse.

You jumped on the guy below for "spreading" misinformation. We in fact you are doing the same thing with your misunderstanding of the words venom, poison, and toxin.
