Copyvio[edit]

Problem: a deal of this comes verbatim from a California Polytechnic State University term paper on Batrachotoxin. I haven't shopped it as copyvio, as it's a first article and is probably down to inexperience. But it needs rewriting pronto. Tearlach 20:50, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

I thought the antidote for the poison arrow/dart frog was honey, seen from man vs wild. Talvinlee (talk) 23:44, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Pitohui[edit]

Shouldn't the Pitohui be listed as a source of the toxin? I'm not sure but I heard their diet of beetles contibute their posion.

I enjoyed your article[edit]

Pronounciation[edit]

How does one pronounce the word Batrachotoxin?? "Buh-track-oh-toxin?" "Bat-trah-cho-toxin?" "Buh-TRAH-cho-toxin?" "Buh-TRAY-ko-toxin?" .. asked by Vid2vid 17:05, 26 April 2007 (UTC).

I suggest "bah-TRAH-cho-toxin" or "buh-TRAH-cho-toxin". Certainly not 'K' on the 'ch'. Rule in English is isolated vowel is soft, so 'ah' rather than 'ay', in 'tra'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.15.68.19 (talk) 21:32, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Contested statements removed to talk[edit]

  • One freshly caught frog has up to 2 milligrams of toxin, or 50 times the lethal dose in humans. {{Fact|date=January 2007}}
