Curare is a common name for various arrow poisons originating from South America. The three main types of curare are:
- Tubocurare (also known as tube or bamboo curare, because of its packing into hollow bamboo tubes; main toxin is D-tubocurarine). It is a mono-quaternary alkaloid, an isoquinoline derivative.
- Calebas curare (also called "gourd curare" by older British classifications, being packed into hollow gourds; main toxins are alloferine and toxiferine)
- Pot curare (packed in terra cotta pots; main toxins are protocurarine, protocurine, and protocuridine).
Of these three types, some formulas belonging to the calebas curare are the most toxic, relative to their LD50 values.
A curare gun, then, is a gun that shoots darts containing one of these types of curare.
