What makes fox-tails stick to your clothes?

on

I was walking around outside trying to find something to look at through my Foldscope. Then I got a fox-tail seed stuck in my sock. That gave me inspiration, I rushed inside, taking the seed with me, and put it in a slide. Turns out there are little barbs on the fox-tail seeds.

    Fantastic. Now I know.. Can you post a picture of what you call “fox-tail”; because most of our international readers are probably thinking about real fox tail. Or are you talking about a real fox tail 🙂
