1. plant prickly vine, unidentified


  • Etnográfica:
    This is a prickly, bushy swamp vine especially prevalent around Wiring Cay lagoon and river. The stem is lined with sharp curved thorns that look like cat nails, and whether green and leafy or dead and leafless, they are dangerously sharp, and people in dories, and even moreso in motorboats, must be vigilant as they will not only grab onto you and tangle you up, but they will also leave nasty lacerations. Especially bad during flood times.
  • Léxica:
    Sp. "rang gallo."
