Description:
Herb that reaches a height of 1 meter. It grows during the rainy season and abounds in irrigated terrain. It produces a yellow fruit and a white flower. It is considered dangerous for livestock, because if eaten in large quantities without drinking any water, the animal can die within a day. If an animal ingests the herb, one remedy is to spread some of its own excrement on its snout so that it vomits up the herb. Saltwater or water mixed with oil can also be used as a remedy.
Habitat:
