Anyone know what it is?

I saw that too, but never again. I never have seen it before, it was interesting.

It looks close, but there were no leaves around, it was like they grew on a vine.

You guys.... don't you know what that is?

That is a very toxic plant only found in tropical places!!

If you touch it you will die within 72 hours!!!

Stay AWAY from that plant!




Lol just kidding I have no idea what it is

Without being able to live with palm trees in the real life, I escape to The Sims to live in a tropical atmosphere with all the palm trees I desire.
