The subcanopy palm Welfia georgii is one of the most common trees at La Selva and is readily distinguished by long antler-like inforescences that bear an unsettling resemblance to snakes after they fall to the ground. Worse yet is the fact that mice consume the fruits that fall to the ground, thereby attracting bushmasters (real snakes) to the areas around these palms.
