blow dart

blow dart

a syringe-like implement with dart overtones delivered from a gun and propelled by compressed air, or carbon dioxide or an explosive charge, or from a mouth operated blowgun. The dart-like tail helps to maintain direction in what is a very low velocity flight. When the needle of the dart is driven into the skin of the target animal the piston is driven forward by the deceleration and discharges the contents of the syringe into the target's tissues. Used primarily to immobilize wild fauna.
