    With the criteria given, the three Royal Palms in my yard could be classified as carniverous. The fronds are about 14 feet long and weigh about 15 pounds. Falling from a height of 50 ft they could easily kill a human being, which would then decompose and provide food for the tree.
    One thing my buddy does know...they put one heck of a dent in the hood of his jeep. Fortunately he uses it hunting in the "glades" and the dent just kinda blends in with the rest of the damage. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    ok. . . it attracts animals- pigeons see a nice shelter
    it kills them- green swords decapitate them
    and it digests them- at the tree's base
    only one that would make it semi-carnivorous is the fact that the WIND
    is really the killer.
