My life begins far above the ground,
Though below the ground life I may give.
When I come down to greet the ground,
A thunderous noise I will make.
A tasty treat to many I provide,
But only if they have the tools to get me.
The macaw is one,
The agouti is another.
Without the aid of the agouti,
My circle of life may never be completed,
And the forest I am part of would lose a valued member.
So watch out below when it's time for me to go,
Or an injury I will give you.

What Next?

Nov 21, 2005

I thought it was a tree at first. man i need to think better. . my mind is mostly in the gutter though
Nov 23, 2005

XD i thought it was a tree too!!! but i can't believe i didn't get it cuz mt science teacher JUST mentioned how they can hit the ground at like 50mph and stuff...*hits self on head*

yaya I got it right!! I saw this on the discovery channel once and its a good thing too. It is really interesting, though, how this species of plant's 'circle of life' works from birth to death. Great job!

Jan 06, 2008

A very NUTTY teaser
Jan 06, 2008

thought it might be a coconut at 1st but reading realised I had no idea lol good one tho`
Jan 06, 2008

This was a reat teaser. At first I was thinking along the lines of pinecones or acorns, but when I saw the animals I knew that I was way off base. Good one, stumped me.
Jan 06, 2008

Once again I have to agree with Auntiesis, my first thought was an acorn, but had to rule that out. This was a very informative Teaser riddle, as I knew nothing about the Hazelnut and now I do. Thanks for posting;, Princess.
Jan 06, 2008

Awesome! I learned something new today. Thanks! Loved the teaser!
Jan 06, 2008

That was a delicious teaser. Thanks for sharing. The information on the nut was helpful, since Brazil Nuts are my fav.
Thanks for posting.

Jan 06, 2008

Need more coffee to crack this one...
Jan 06, 2008

OOPS!! Sorry for the double post, obviously I still don't know anything about the Hazelnut, but I sure do know about the Brazil Nut.Thanks again, Princess.
Jan 06, 2008

I LOVE NUTS!!! (cause i'm one too )... great, informative teaser... the only thing i did not know was that agoutis had poor memory and thus assisted in the regeneration of castana trees... there's nothing i love more then learning something new while having fun!!!... thanx for the post
Jan 06, 2008

I knew it was a nut , but not knowing a thing about the Brazil nut I did not get it. But thanks to your teaser I now am well versed on the Brasil nut. THX.
Jan 06, 2008

I also knew it was a nut, but I didn't know all about a brazil nut. That was interesting. Thanks!
Jan 06, 2008

My first thought was an acorn also Bradon, then I went with coconut & thought I was smart. Boy did I learn something today. I must read this again. very interesting. GOOD ONE !
Jan 06, 2008

This was really interesting! I also love to eat Brazil nuts, but I had no idea of how they grew and all the other intersting information. I just guessed "coconut" because it was the only one I could think of that might hurt someone when it falls. Thanks for the interesting info!
Jan 08, 2008

I was with the coconut crowd. It was definitely fun to learn more about the brazil nut. (I still wish they were easier to open though!)
