Forensic Alphabet #7

I did consider using a homicidal Yodelling Yak with a Yo-Yo, but the photo proved too tricky. Here are the final two letters in the Forensic Alphabet Series:

Y is for YELLOW POISON DART FROG

While fairy tales may encourage girls to kiss an amphibian,
This frog secretes alkaloid toxin through its skin.



Z is for ZZZZZ’s (ZOLPIDIEM, ZOPICLONE, ZALEPHON)

Some people overdose on pills that aid sleep,
But this lion died from counting too many sheep.




Forensic Alphabet #1 A-D
Forensic Alphabet #2 E-H
Forensic Alphabet #3 I-L
Forensic Alphabet #4 M-P
Forensic Alphabet #5 Q-T
Forensic Alphabet #6 U-X

Your forensic alphabet has been illuminating and entertaining, all the while humour and wit sustaining. Well done, especially the coping with Z!

Great alphabet. Now what are you going to do? I just loved this series.

Thanks for the comments. In the end it turned out that zebras were not used for Z. Admittedly, this was almost entirely due to my lack of stripy equines for a photo.
