1000 Ways to Dye: Keizer_Ghidorah:

And yes, venom is MUCH different from poison, and you CANNOT use "poisonous" and "venomous" interchangeably.

Poison is ingested, venom is injected?


That's the most basic difference. Poisons are contained in the flesh or certain organs, or exuded onto the skin. Eating or trying to eat them, or simply touching them in some cases, is a bad idea, and they're purely defensive in nature. Venoms are injected into the body by fang, spine, or stinger, and are both offense and defense. Also, poisons are composed of oils in a lipid base, while venoms are quite complex protein chains, which is why it's generally safe to drink venom without suffering ill effects.

Ah, venom. Simple in purpose, complex in design. There are three basic types:

Hemotoxic: attacks the blood and blood vessels, destroying them and causing the prey to hemorrhage to death.

Neurotoxic: attacks the nerve cells, disrupting the nervous signals and causing muscular paralysis and failure of the diaphragm and/or heart.

Myotoxic: attacks the muscle tissue, digesting it and causing death by trauma, bleeding, and other complications.

Of course, those are for the offensive venoms that snakes, ants, and other hunters use. There's also the defensive venoms used by lionfish, scorpionfish, caterpillars, and others whose job is to cause excruciating pain and trauma to attackers, even to the point of total system collapse from the overload of pain.

And yes, venom is MUCH different from poison, and you CANNOT use "poisonous" and "venomous" interchangeably.
