The ‘Wait-a-while’ Palm (5)

The 'Wait-a-while' Palm (5) - The 'Wait-a-while' palm, (Calamus motii), has seriously sharp hooks on the sheath of the stem, that help the plant to climb high up into the canopy of the Daintree tropical rainforest by hooking onto bigger trees. The hooks are large and stiff and make a 'plunck' sound when flicked. Red Peak (Skyrail) Station, Barron Gorge National Park, Queensland, Australia.
