The deadliest beast is a tree - Manchineel
Aug 24, 2016
Afraid of wild animals? Well... here is a tree that could be more dangerous. Manchineel trees have developed a very effective protection system. You can barely stand close to them.
- If you stand under it during rain, it will burn your skin severely.
- If you burn the wood, the smoke makes you blind.
- If you eat its fruit (that by the way looks like an apple) you will die.
