Walking tree strange


Walking trees can apparently move up to 2-3 cm per day, or 20 meters per annum. which will not sound like much, but it’s just about a marathon by tree-standards.



Meet the Walking Palm, also known scientifically as Socratea exorrhiza. found in geographical region. many of us believe it can literally walk around (more or less). this can be thanks to its unusual root system; while most trees have one trunk, the palm splits into many smaller roots some feet off the bottom, giving it the looks of the many little legs.


The amazing ambulatory ability of the walking tree has been told by rainforest guides to tourists for years, and appears in many sources as an incredible plant adaptation. As journalist Sherry Seethaler writes in her book "Curious Folks Ask 2" (2011, FT Press): "Screenwriters attempting to find the proper B-movie plant protagonist could take inspiration from the walking palm, found within the rainforests of Central and South America. The tree slowly 'walks' from shade to sunlight by growing new roots toward the sunshine and allowing the old roots interfering with its wanderlust to die."
