A recently published article on BBC's website mentions a certain palm tree that has allegedly developed a rather unique ability unbecoming of a plant - the ability to walk. The palm in question is Socratea exorrhiza.
The bizarre idea stems from the fact that scientists are unable to explain the tree's strange stilt-like roots. Found in tropical rainforests of Central and South America, the Socratea exorrhiza develops long and sturdy roots that grow outwards from the base of the tree. It wasn't long before people started to believe that these roots actually act like legs enabling the palm tree to literally walk in the forest.
