If a parent plant wants its children to travel, it can grow delicious fruit that will be eaten by an animal. Said animal will roam around and poop out the seeds, creating offspring some distance away from the mother plant.
But some plants don't have the patience to grow fruit. So instead they've evolved this crazy "ballistic" method of dispersing their seeds, known as explosive dehiscence. The folks over at the Smithsonian Channel have captured this phenomenon on video, and the sound effects they've added are awesome:
The segment is part of SC's "Amazing Plants" series, where you can watch them eat bugs, "talk" to each other, and undergo an experiment to see if classical music can actually make them grow faster.
