In the indigenous Shuar community of Tink, traditional forms of hunting, such as the use of poisonous darts, are still practiced. They paint the darts with venom from a poisonous vine found in the Amazonian rainforest outside of their community. The darts are then loaded into a bamboo shaft around eight feet long. The hunter then holds the bamboo rod up to their lips, aims at the target and exhales the full capacity of their lungs, hoping that it is strong enough to reach the victim.
