The Solenodon

Conservationists are in the Dominican Republic to save the Hispaniolan solenodon. The solenodon is one of the oldest animals (it has been around since the times of the dinosaurs), it is also the only mammal that inject venom directly from its teeth.

You can read alot more about this remarkable animal and see pictures and watch videos here.

Thanks for posting, I had not heard of this creature before! So sad that it has existed for so long and is now threatened by thoughtless human activity.
