the desert rose (Adenium obesum) is a plant you want to avoid. Found in dry bush land in parts of Africa and Arabia, its toxic sap is traditionally used by tribes in Tanzania to coat arrow-tips. A animal pierced by such an arrow will usually die extremely quickly, within 2km of the place it was shot.
