The Buckeye has nuts that look very similar to the Chestnut but is highly toxic.  There are multiple toxins such as glycoside aesculin, saponin aescin, other alkaloids, and a narcotic glycoside.  All parts of this tree are toxic and should be avoided at all costs, even though there are certain species of rodents that can scavenge on it.  The neurological system is attacked quickly and severely by this toxin.  Symptoms can include:

  • Dilated Eyes
  • Drooling
  • Depression
  • Excited State
  • Staggering
  • Trembling
  • Weakness
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Colic
  • Seizure
  • Coma
