PLANT LEGEND

THERE IS A TYPE OF TREE THAT LOOKS LIKE AN ORDINARY TREE IN THE DAYTIME, BUT AT NIGHT THE TREE GROWS MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF FRUIT. IF YOU PICKED SOME OF THIS FRUIT THE ROOTS OF THE TREE WOULD COME OUT OF THE GROUND AND DEVOUR YOU. THE TREE COULD ALSO MOVE DURING THE NIGHT BY WALKING ON ITS ROOTS. BUT IT HAD TO RETURN TO ITS ORIGINAL PLACE AT DAYTIME OR DAWN; THESE TREES COULD BE IN GROUPS.
