Firstly a delightful-looking little frog, with a bright yellow skin and a fearsome reputation. The Golden Poison Frog (Phyllobates terribilis)
Altogether more cute and far less dangerous is this beautiful character, a Meerkat (Suricata suricatta)
They are partially immune to many types of venom and are completely immune to the powerful venom of the Kalahari Desert scorpions which form a good portion of it's diet. "Seemples"
