What Is A Cotyledon?
Cotyledons are the small, white flowers found on the stems of certain plants. They are sometimes called “dandelions” or “cotton grass.” There are many different types of cottontails (Canis lupus familiaris), but they all look similar and belong to one of two families: Canidae and Cattailidae. Each family has its own common name for each species. For example, the American cottontail (Otocinclus ocellatus) is known as the redneck cottontail because it resembles a person wearing a red baseball cap.
The genus Canis includes over 1,000 species of mammals, birds and reptiles. Some species live in North America, some live in Europe and Asia, and others live throughout the world.
All members of these groups have four toes on their front feet and five toes on their hind feet. These animals are grouped into three genera: Caniformes (including humans), Felidae (which includes foxes, dogs, cats and wolves) and Mustelids (including raccoons).
The cottontail is a timid, herbivorous mammal with a short, fluffy tail. The ears are large (for hearing and regulating body temperature) and the eyes are round like the eyes of humans.
The upper jaw is slightly longer than the lower jaw and does not have any prominent chin. The teeth are well developed, with three incisors at the top and bottom for biting off grass and small plants.
Cottontails have a wide range of colors and patterns, with gray, brown or blonde coats. They live in burrows in the ground (typically in open fields), eat natural vegetation and are active throughout the year.
Like deer, they also have a white coloration (in this case, as a protective camouflage against predators such as hawks).
What is a cotyledon?
A cotyledon is a type of plant embryo. The name comes from the words “cotyledonary” and “cotyledon,” which mean “seed leaf.” This type of plant can be found anywhere in the world, typically growing in cold or temperate climates and in wet environments.
Cotyledons are small plants with short stems, large leaves and only a few branches. The flowers have white or purple petals and a green stem.
They are known to hypnotize animals into a trance-like state, then release an airborne poison that paralyzes the body within minutes.
What does a cotyledon look like?
A cotyledon is a very small plant that grows directly from the ground. It has a white or purple base and typically one large leaf per plant. The stalk is green, topped with either white or purple petals. The plant itself is very inconspicuous and can be easily mistaken for a patch of clover.
Cotyledons are sometimes confused with other types of plants, namely the cow patty (which has similar white and purple coloring) and clovers (which can grow in patches on the ground). It’s important to learn how to identify these plants before venturing outdoors, as all three can have adverse (even deadly) effects on the body.
What do cotyledons do to the body?
Cotyledons are one of the most deadly plants in the world. Although they can be eaten (after thorough cooking) without any ill effects, they can also kill a full-grown man within hours if ingested. Typically, these plants release a colorless, odorless gas (in the form of a purple vapor) that puts humans (and animals) into a deep trance before paralyzing the body.
The cotyledon plant has a root that extends several feet into the ground. This root is what gives the plant its hypnotic qualities and dangerous poisons.
It can take up to 24 hours before the poison is fully absorbed by the body and takes effect.
How can you treat cotyledon poisoning?
There is no known antidote for cotyledon poisoning. Vomiting can easily be induced (by putting your head between your legs and encouraging yourself to throw up) before the poison takes effect. Typically, the victim will experience numbness in the limbs and tingling around the mouth area. It is at this point that the cotyledon has taken hold of the body, and it’s important to get medical attention as soon as possible.
Cotyledons are typically planted by individuals seeking revenge on another person. In most cases, the victim of the cotyledon plant is often a complete stranger to the person who planted it.
This type of poisoning is called “Vengeance Poisoning” and is a common way of getting back at someone in a society that has no real police force or court system.
What is cotyledon made out of?
Almost all parts of the cotyledon plant are poisonous. The root, stem, leaves and flowers all carry a poison that can be deadly to humans and animals. The poison itself is colorless and odorless. It can easily kill an animal or person that eats it, but even the smallest touch of this plant can be dangerous.
Cotyledon plants are typically grown in the wild, but some people grow them in their backyards as well. These types of people are generally psychopaths or serial killers that want to use the poison for killing people that get in their way.
Is cotyledon illegal?
Cotyledons are not typically considered illegal to have in a home (even though they are deadly), but there have been laws passed that make it illegal to plant these types of plants outside where they can endanger others. In some places, it is illegal to even own the seeds to grow the plant.
Cotyledons have been used in the past to kill enemies or unwanted guests. Someone looking to kill someone else will typically just leave the plant somewhere that the victim is sure to find it (such as in their bed).
It’s not uncommon for children to find these plants and bring them home to show their parents, not knowing of the danger that they’re in. After the child brings it home, the parent will likely bring it to the police station as a warning to other parents.
Is cotyledon found outside?
Cotyledons are typically found outside in the wild. They grow naturally all over the world. They can be easily spotted due to their purple and green leaves and large bulb-like structures that grow above ground. These bulb-like structures are typically where the cotyledon takes root again once it has sprouted. These bulb-like structures will start out white in color and turn a lavender color as it grows. The entire cotyledon plant can grow up to 3 feet tall and has a distinct but faint smell of almonds.
Cotyledon is also typically found in the home of a psychopathic killer that wants to kill people that get in their way. These types of people typically grow the plants in little pots on their windowsills or somewhere else that gives them ample sunlight.
The person may even give the plant a name, such as “Brenda”, after the girl he had killed and used it to poison.
How do you treat cotyledon poisoning?
Cotyledon poisoning is typically treated at the hospital with an injection of Atropine. This drug will help to slow down or stop the effects of the poison. It can take up to two weeks for all of the nerve damage to heal completely. Minor side effects from the Atropine can include headaches, dizziness, and trouble sleeping. During this two week treatment period, patients are typically asked to remain at the hospital for observation. Patients that are victims of cotyledon poisoning are often fearful that they will be arrested due to the fact that they have been poisoned and will attempt to leave the hospital before their treatments are complete.
What is the history of cotyledon?
Cotyledons have been used for thousands of years to poison enemies and kill animals for food. Hunter-gatherers would typically use the plant to eliminate competing tribes for a particular hunting ground or eliminate animals that they were struggling to kill. The plants themselves can be difficult to spot due to their green and purple leaves which typically helps them blend in with surrounding foliage.
