I play the flute and endure the screeching of the bagpipes here in Scotland quite regularly. I think that mopane is becoming a highly desirable wood to make instruments, it's certainly something I've heard on the grapevine.

Euphorbia cooperi and Euphorbia ingens are used locally to stun fish. Break off a branch, chuck it in a pool, and you can get some food.

You said tree, Tom, but I know that parts of the impala lily are also used to poison fish.

I'll give it to you FG. There were several possible answers. As you said, different groups of hunters prefer different poisons. Well done!
