Button Polyp Coral is a species of Zoanthid that contains one of the most toxic organic substances in the world and less than 5 micrograms is enough to kill a human. Luckily it's difficult to get poisoned by one, and normal handling shouldn't pose a problem. On the other hand, I have a sweet excuse for not showing up to work, which should trump "my Grandma died (for the seventh time)".
