There were a study about this, it was the grey mongoose. 10mg venom could not kill one, where 20mg killed a sheep.

Heksie and Philip1 :thumbs_up:

A polyphyodont is an animal whose teeth are continuously replaced. An elephant is a classic example!

Hematophagy is the practice of certain animals of feeding on blood.

The oxpecker is one example of an animal that exhibits this trait.
