Apologies for being a day late with letters M-P. Some awful stomach bug kept me away from the computer for the last couple of days. Also there was a last minute change with the letter P entry as my young son absconded with pathologist pig just before the photoshoot. He did, however, enthusiastically assist with staging the photo for the letter M, and now he may never eat a cookie normally again.

This one covers his victims in a ritual en-crumbination.
N is for NEUROTOXIN
The toxins in venoms of some spiders and pufferfish,
Act upon neurons leading to fatal paralysis
O is for ORELLANINE
A lethal poison found in some species of mushroom,
Deadly Webcap, for one, is dangerous to consume.
P is for POST MORTEM
An autopsy confirms time and cause of the death,
This bear was killed ironically after having bad breath.
