Why does Venus rotate in the opposite direction to the Earth?

Venus's Rotation.

Venus's rotation is very slow and for a long time I thought it might have been due to an early collision, however, it seems that it's more likely to be due tidal forces acting upon it's extremly dense atmosphere.

...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
