My family and I are currently vacationing on the tiny island of Bonaire N.E. We went on a walk yesterday and found this really cool seed pod! Inside it there are shiny black seeds with a white protection coating thing around it. The seed pod is red. It is very cool! The tree has thorns and really small leaves. I also found the seed pods on another tree with more roundish leaves and no thorns. Bonaire is a desert tropical island. Very humid and also has various types of trees! Ranging from palm trees to lignum Vitae trees. The pictures of the seed pods and seeds are posted here. ignore first picture of the a tree
it is the wrong one!
