Harpagophytum: This fantastically gruesome structure is the seedpod of the Harpagophytum plant– often called the Devil’s Claw. They are native to desert regions of southern Africa. The structure is designed to grab onto the lower limbs of anything that steps in the centre of the pod. The recurved barbs then hold it fast, while the animal – typically an antelope of some sort – carries the pod off and acts as a dispersal agent for the seeds.
