True or False? Wild mushrooms are venomous.
Both answers are False. Please explain you say.
If you eat something and it makes you sick or kills you then it was a poisonous substance that you ingested.
If something bites you and you become ill or die then that something was venomous.
So, the next time you see a snake and are about to say it is poisonous. STOP! Think about it for a moment. I've never heard of someone dying from eating a snake. Have you? I have heard of people dying because a snakes venom has entered into their blood system and they didn't get the anti-venom in time.
And poison dart frog are only poisonous because of the plants they eat. It is not something they manufacture in their bodies. Great form of defense I say.
