    This is a strange phenomenon. A crawling stick which has plain branches on either side. This brings back memories of Dominica. I recall seeing such a green thing in Dominica, whatever it is called. I wondered what could it be?
    Only in Dominica you say? :) This is worth performing some sort of research. Do any other islands have this sort of thing?
