That same researcher recounted the time a couple that he accidentally surprised while they were farming on a remote hillside backed away from him in terror, shovels raised in defense. Their "pods" contain ambulatory predators who occasionally wake up and emerge to feed, using telepathy and shape-shifting to assume a pleasing appearance and lure in their prey.

      The terrified cow herd ran to the village, and Gowda got a band of villagers to the carnivorous tree. When she looked at it, birds alighted on it and sang. They particularly love to drain the blood of vampires, who are generally not amused by the irony. At a bend in a sluggish creek, they come upon a remarkable plant, something like an 8-foot-tall pineapple. Ironically, this is said to occur in Arizona, of all places.
