Venomous Desert Dwellers

Bites & Stings

The Venomous Desert Dwellers Guide features the most dangerous reptiles, insects and spiders. These animals inject venom by stinging or biting their prey.  A poisonous animal differs from a venomous one by their method of delivery.   A poisonous animal will secrete toxins through their skin when another animal touches or ingests it.  Examples of poisonous animals are the Sonoran desert toad and blister beetles.
