The ABCs of ABC – Y

Y is for… Ya-te-veo

The Ya-te-veo (literally “I see you”) is, as far as anyone knows, only described by Buel in his book Sea and Land. Since it’s found in both Africa and South America, it’s either a Wegenerian miracle or an amalgamation of all carnivorous plant tall tales. It tends to look like a comfy seat before snaring people in its spiked tentacles and giving them the Iron Maiden treatment. Excellent!

  1. I appreciate the fact that it looks like a horrible murder-Welwitschia. Well chosen.

    Also, wouldn’t “Ya te veo” be “*Now* I see you”, not just “I see you”? Or is this one of those thing where I don’t quite understand South American dialects of Spanish?
