" Seeds "
This is an image of a fruit of the Sandbox Tree of Hura Crepitans, also known as monkey no-climb tree and dynamite tree. The fruit is a large capsule with seeds that can be launched at 70 meters per seconds as far as 100 meters away and that split in 12 parts. Fishermen have been said to use the milky, caustic sap from this tree to poison fish. The Caribs made arrow poison from its sap. Before more modern forms of pens were invented, the trees' unripe seed capsules were sawn in half to make decorative pen sandboxes.
