Devil Pod???



Georgia and myself went to the supermarket to do a little grocery shopping and we saw these. Apparently they are called Devil Pod, Goat Head, Bat nut, Bull nut or Buffalo Nut! They certainly look weird and both of us are fascinated at the shape of the nut. Nature is just so amazing!

I found some info on the net regarding these nuts. Because of the shapes of the nuts, they are sometimes being used to worship the devil!!! Other than that, it's an asian nut and it is eaten like the chestnut.
