 .. in full bloom in my colony. From afar, they are a brilliant sight. For an intruder, it is the worst nightmare.

They are thorny, woody, vines growing anywhere from 1-12 meters tall, scrambling over other plants with their hooked thorns. The thorns are tipped with a black, waxy substance that is easily left in the flesh of an unsuspecting victim.
