SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!
Hello everyone! I sure hope everyone had a great weekend! Who’s ready to learn the new word for this week?
Let’s get right to it! This week’s word is Venomous!
Venomous: an animal is venomous when they have a toxin that is injected, by a bite or sting. Animals like snakes and spiders are what we usually first think of when we think of a venomous animal. But so are a lot of insects, like wasps. And did you know that the platypus is venomous? Crazy, huh? Most venomous animals use their venom to catch prey, but some use it as a defense mechanism. Venom can cause everything from irritation to death. Ack!
