Again, poison is ingested and venom is injected. You can drink venom and as long as you have no wounds to allow the venom enter the blood stream, it does not affect you. Completely different than poison.
From the Oxford English Dictionary, our Bible, Venom: a poisonous liquid injected by snakes and spiders.
We use the two words as synonyms. Sorry. I will have more care when using the two words.
That may be so, but they are not the same thing :)
Poison and venom looks the same in Portuguese.
Not poison Sckel, but venom. I assume that is what David is referring to. Venom is injected, while poison is ingested. Different modes of delivery. Most snakes and spiders are venomous, not poisonous.
The only family that has no poison, is the Uloboridae. Salticidae have poison, but are unable to cause us harm.
