Tetrodotoxin (4368-28-9), a toxin from the globe fish ovaries and liver (Merck Index 12th Ed.).  There
is a much longer IUPAC name of course, but I don't have time to type it.

Can someone please tell me what TTX is? I was told that it is a
naturally occuring toxin, but I have been unable to find any info on
it.  A formula or full name would be most helpful.  Thanks.
