This decorative and common tree of tropical climates produces a mortality if you ingest it from 50% to 75%. Symptoms include black stools, wounds and liver failure.

Never play with your dog near a yew: the leaves of this tree are lethal with just biting a twig. The worst part is that the symptoms are not detected until it is too late.
