Wild Oats

The wild oat is provided with a curious "feeler," with which the seed burrows its way into the ground. The apparatus is not provided with the capacity for automatic motion, of course, but it twists about under the influence of moisture and varying conditions of heat, and ultimately effects the purpose of partially burying the seed.
