Examples of venomous in a Sentence

  1. Anuj Somany:

    Poisonous snake will naturally make relationship with the venomous reptiles only, but eventually either he will eat them or they will devour him.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Never try to look back, and never gaze into the Past. Sometimes Past can be like Medusa, the hideous Gorgon with scary human face and having venomous snakes in the place of her hair. Beware of gazing directly into Medusa's eyes, for it can turn the onlooker into a stone. The Past does exactly the same - it freezes you stone cold, slowing and stopping all your actions, ambitions and aspirations..... the reason why Past is likened to Medusa here. Look forward to today, to this very moment, to the Present that welcomes you happily, as your journey of life continues upwards and onwards. A Viaxe Continua! Have a great journey, my friend!

  3. Anuj Somany:

  4. Kenneth Angielczyk:

    Euchambersia has very distinct, large pits on the side of its face that connect to grooves on the canine teeth via a groove above the tooth row, this combination of features in Euchambersia has been used to hypothesize that it may have been venomous, although again we can't be completely certain of this. The groove in Ichibengops shows some similarities to that in Euchambersia, and because they are fairly closely related, we suggested that something similar may have been going on in Ichibengops.

  5. Matthew Stover:

    There are some who say that Time is itself a hammer; that each slow second marks another tap that makes big rocks into little rocks, waterfalls into canyons, cliffs into beaches. There are some who say that Time is instead a blade. They see the dance of its razored tip, poised like a venomous snake, forever ready to slay faster than the eye can see. And there are some who say that Time is both hammer and blade. They say the hammer is a sculptor's mallet, and the blade is a sculptor's chisel: that each stroke is a refinement, a perfecting, a discovery of truth and beauty within what would otherwise be blank and lifeless stone. And I name this saying wisdom.
