Which mammal is venomous and dangerous to humans?

sloth
mangusta
platypus
vampire bat
The venom produced in the crural glands of the male platypus is not lethal to humans. However, it produces ex­cru­ci­at­ing pain which does not respond even to mor­phine; some­times the pain develops into a long-last­ing hy­per­al­ge­sia that can persist for months. Some bi­ol­o­gists suggest that the venom may work directly on the brain's pain re­cep­tors. Other venomous mammals are small in­sec­ti­vores and vampire bats, which produce toxic saliva.
