An excellent entry overall, but I can't help noticing that you missed curare, one of my personal favorites. Also, what about poison arrow frog(or whatever order those are supposed to go in)?

I'm not sure about curare, but I'm fairly sure that poison dart frog "juice" would be considered a "toxin" rather than a poison as stated in the entry.

The thing about curare is that it's perfectly harmless when ingested, it just gets digested, but deadly if the victim has even the smallest wound in the mouth or throat, as it getting into the bloodstream will kill! So no good for poisoning people the traditional way...
