Duck-Billed Platypus

The male platypus has a spur, located on the heel behind each leg. Their venom is not known to be deadly to humans. Perhaps we had no idea on that..

The venom is produced only by mature males and is most potent during mating season, leading some researches to believe that it is used primarily against competing males.
