Yes, you are correct regarding the LD50 for tetrodotoxin. It is ~10 ug/kg
by i.p. injection in rodents and is ~ 200-300 ug/kg by the oral route in
mammals (ref. Casarett and Doull's Toxicology, The basic science of
poisons. 5th ed. pg. 825).
Good luck with the War. It seems that the cults, irate factions, and nut
cases throughout the world are starting to study their toxicology!
