Pottermore pulls uncanny Aomi shennanigans. (I went back to see how things can ‘link up’ )
Aomi gets her wand, it is made of laurel wood, gets sorted into Slytherin.
I look up the whole Laurel tree family, more focusing on Prunus laurocerasus. (English Laurel /cherry laurel)
Find out the seed of the fruit of the tree may cause severe discomfort to humans if ingested. The seeds contained within the cherries are poisonous like the rest of the plant, containing CYANOGENIC GLYCOSIDES and amygdalin. So there is a potential for cyanide… (THE WHOLE BLOODY TREE SMELLS LIKE ALMONDS- Aomi is a ferocious nut/seed/fruit eater to begin with)
Find out that Aomi can mean ‘blue-green algae’ /pond scum whoopdeedoo look that up and CYANOBACTERIA?
Some cyanobacteria produce toxins, called cyanotoxins. These include anatoxin-a, anatoxin-as, aplysiatoxin, cylindrospermopsin, domoic acid, microcystin LR, nodularin R (from Nodularia), neosaxitoxin and saxitoxin. Cyanobacteria reproduce explosively under certain conditions. This results in algal blooms, which can become harmful to other species if the cyanobacteria involved produce toxins. These toxins can be neurotoxins, hepatotoxins, cytotoxins, and endotoxins, and can be toxic and dangerous to humans as well as other animals and marine life in general. Several cases of human poisoning have been documented but a lack of knowledge prevents an accurate assessment of the risks.
