Please Don't Climb the Tree

Not native Hawaiian...Hawaiian plants do not have thorns. I found this one at the Panaewa Rainforest Zoo and Gardens in Hilo.

    Wow!!..not a garden that you would walk around in after dark or after a couple glasses of ya think Mother Nature was just a little menapausal when she told the monkeys to stay out of these trees or else....:-}))) ....I think that would be too many thorns for a butcher bird....regards, den

    I don't think you will have any problems keeping me off that tree. That looks truly painful....

    Might be a bit of a problem if someone climbed it! I guess thats why the criminals came to australia our gum tree's aren't that painful... :-)
