Muiratinga - caruara
No, those aren't walking sticks leaning up against the two muiratinga trees ( Maquira sp.). They are actually branches from the tree that have fallen in a very unique way. Much like many plants, the branches break off from the trunk of the tree taking with them the "socket" that joined them with the tree. This socket, for the lack of a better botanical name, takes on the physical appearance of a penis with the foreskin pulled back, or a circumcised penis. Next image, please.
