The Badass Tree (8 photo)


This is the sandbox tree, found throughout the tropical regions of the Americas. 
This tree is kind of a badass. Not only is its trunk covered in these scary looking thorns (leading to its nickname, Monkey no-climb) its fruit actually EXPLODE when ripe. The pumpkin like fruits launch their seeds away at speeds of up to 160 mph, and some sources report seeds being found as much as 100 metres from the exploding fruit.
