        I think all the fluoroacetate containing plants are legumes. That is, they produce pods like a pea. Most are in the family Fabaceae (the pea flowered ones) but there are some poisonous wattles in the family Mimosaceae (such as Acacia georginae). All or most occur naturally in Western Australia or Northern Territory.   The book outlines potential toxicity to pets by categorising the plants into four levels with each toxic level identified by colours found on the edge of each page. However, prevention is better than cure and the information in this book also helps pet owners and garden designers "poison proof" the home and garden.

      Australian Plants There are o plants species in Australia, and like our animals, many of them are not present anywhere else in the world. Westprint offers a comprehensive range of guides and a selection of non-fiction works that celebrate Australia’s flora.   Nowhere can we find an “all-inclusive” list of toxic or poisonous plants for goats, and most of those lists will be generalized for all livestock or specific livestock. Reader Kristen Fife provided this highly curated list from Cornell University. I will go over just a few to watch out for. Your local veterinarian, county extension office.

Growing conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil. Height: To 4 feet, depending on variety. Zones:
