A Thornhead colony on a cloudy day

Purple Thornheads are plants native to the Purple Forest and Islanda on Gamila. Thornhead colonies make up most of the plant population in the Purple Forest, and are also somewhat common in Islanda. Surprisingly, Thornhead colonies aren't actually colonies; they are very large underground plants that grow tall enough to breach the surface. Thornhead seeds are shaped like small drills, which are shot out of holes in the plant at very fast speeds in order to breach the surface. If a seed succeeds in making its way far underground, it will grow into a bulb-like object and start growing long tentacles which make up the colonies. The branches are very sticky, and tend to catch small flying animals on their stalks. The branches then use tiny needles to suck nutrients out of the creatures.
