Visiting Chocó (Colombia) / Visita al Chocó #5 (Fauna and Flora)

in #photography2 years ago

The Chocó is a region rich on water and sun and it's not difficult to see a lot of wild life, in some cases very strange ones like the "zancona" planta. Go to the end of the post to see it ;-)
Siendo el Chocó una región bendecida con cantidades de agua y sol no es muy difícil ver animales y plantas por todo lado, algunos bastante extraños como la zancona. La descripción y fotos al final de la publicación

All the following pictures are my own, they were taken using a Sony A5000.

The "Zancona" (Big Legs) is a "walking" tree. The support "legs" can be grown or left to be rotten if the tree wants to move to a better spot to catch more sunlight. Of course this movement is a few centimeters and can take a few weeks to happen :-)
La zancona es una planta/árbol que "camina". Las "piernas" que le sirven de soporte crecen o se dejan podrir si la planta quiere moverse a otro lugar donde hay más luz del sol. Obviamente este movimiento es sólo algunos centímentros y toma varias semanas :-)


Zancona's "roots": these filaments are connected to the "legs" and take the humidity from the air and nutrients from the soil even if they never go into the ground.
"Raíces" de la zancona: Estos filamentos salen de las "piernas" de la planta y capturan la humedad del aire y los nutrientes de la tierra aún si no se entierran

@hql2016 i enjoy seeing this post, nice pictures you captured, is that snake poisonous anyway?

Thanks, it's not poisonous at all but like all animals it would try to bite you if you bother it.
