Arrow poisons are used to poison arrow heads or darts for the
purposes of hunting. They have been used by hunter-gatherer peoples
worldwide and are still in use in areas of South America, Africa
and Asia. Notable examples are the poisons secreted from the skin
of the poison dart frog and curare (or 'ampi'), a general term for
a range of plant-derived arrow poisons used by the indigenous
peoples of South America. Poisoned arrows have featured in
mythology, notably the Greek story of Heracles slaying the centaur
Nessus using arrows poisoned with the blood of the Lernaean Hydra.
