While they do not technically produce venom, their diet consists of pretty much anything dead, and that creates a special mixture of deadly bacteria build up in their mouths.

Their saliva contains more than 50 types of bacteria, of which 7 are highly septic and 4 have no known specific antidote. However, if treated with powerful antibiotics, it proves non-fatal to humans.
