Oysters have been seen to climb trees on various Caribbean islands. Isognomonidae family oysters from the tropics do better on mangrove roots. They may be exposed during low tide, making them simple to gather. When told that in the Caribbean, “oysters grow on trees,” tourists in Trinidad, West Indies, are frequently shocked.
There are oysters that can scale trees in the Caribbean.
As you may expect, this is complete nonsense because oysters cannot climb trees! That one is put to rest by a conspicuous lack of arms and legs; in reality, oysters are left clinging to trees as the high tide comes in. The oysters are left clinging to the trees when the tide finally goes out, giving rise to the myth that they can climb trees.
However, there is a class of mollusks known as mangrove oysters that are not even closely related to real oysters. The roots of the mangrove trees that line the coastlines of several Caribbean islands are where the mangrove oysters attach themselves. I can picture them appearing to be attempting to climb out of the ocean at low tide.
“You cannot convince a guy to change an opinion that was not formed through reason.”
There is a breed of Caribbean oyster that can climb trees, according to a very questionable source I heard. Could it be true? If so, do they stand on one foot and climb the tree trunk? It’s horrifying to picture. kindly inform us.
Well, if a prarie squid can do it, I don’t see why those, whatever kind of oysters you were referring to, couldn’t.
Random thoughts: on baptism, turning 100, and oysters that can climb trees
3 RANDONNEOUS THOUGHTS
#1 – From the Lord’s Baptism Festival on [Sunday, the 13th]:
“We spread the good news in order to recognize and remember that God has just as much right to claim us as His own as He did with Jesus Christ. Because we were baptized in the names of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we were practically grafted into Christ, and because of our relationship with Him, we are God’s people. As a result, we always begin our prayers in the names of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as we acknowledge the presence of God. By doing that in front of others, we are letting them know that we have received baptism. We are the children of God. By holding up that sign, we invite newly baptized brothers and sisters to join us in prayer as God’s redeemed people.” St. Mark the Evangelist, Norman, OK: Fr. Thomas Boyer
We are reminded today that God looks at each of us and says, “You are my Beloved daughter/son, in whom I am well pleased.” “Today we commemorate the most important day in each of our lives, our baptism day. [My own interpretation] At St. Thomas More in Austin, Texas, Father Brian McMaster
#2 – This is my 100th DAY BY DAY blog article, despite the fact that I still view myself as a newbie blogger. Over the past several months, I’ve learned a lot about the blogosphere, but most importantly, I’ve realized how much I love blogging! Five of my favorite posts are listed below:
Actually, not quite. Mangrove trees, which resemble shrubs and on which the indigenous oysters cling during high tide, are seen lining several Caribbean islands. The oysters, on the other hand, are left high and dry and cling to life as the ocean recedes. True incident
