First described in J.W. Buel's Land and Sea (1887), the Ya-Te-Yeo or "I See You" was said to be a man-eating tree that preyed upon the people of Central America. Normally it would ensnare birds and small mammals in its tendrils, but the monstrous plant would not hesitate to devour a human being if the unfortunate subject drew too close.
This is yet another reason for people to responsibly manage their woodlots. If everyone would consult their friendly forester, then abominations such as the Ya-Te-Yeo could be kept away from populated areas.
