If it is, you’re mighty lucky to have one around, as all their seed-dispersing animal partners went and got themselves extinctified at the end of the Pleistocene. Nowadays they mostly spread via flash floods and the occasional curious cow. Then again, these could just be especially fat locust pods… Nice site, by the by, and beautiful pictures.

The mystery seeds are somewhat smaller pods and the plants have a limited distribution in North America. Leave a ReplyYour email address will not be published.
