|Abstract:||Some ethno-biological observations have been made amongst the aboriginals of the South India for their traditional method of treatment using animals and their products. They live in harmony with the nature. They are using many drugs of animal origin (birds, fishes, reptiles, ants, insects, mammals, etc.) They are using entire organism or their body parts and products such as flesh, bones, teeth, bone marrow, blood, fat, testicles, semen; other secretion products such as milk, butter, ghee, honey, and even metabolic products like urine and excreta of not only the domesticated animals but also of the wild animals. Over all, 42 animals were identified as drug producing and recorded by their zoological names.|
