Poison Chicharron (Comocladia dodonaea) is the most common of three poisonous plants found in Puerto Rico. Its distinctive shiny leaves tipped with spines are a warning to stay away. It belongs to the same plant family (Anacardiaceae) as Poison Oak. It grows along the dry south coastal region of Puerto Rico and grows up to 15 feet in height.
