Knersus' teeth.

When I was growing up there was an Afrikaans kiddies show on South African tv called Oscar en Knersus. Oscar was a rabbit while Knersus was a big Pterodactyls with huge teeth. Knersus was always trying to catch Oscar. For some reason we always called these plants Knersus' teeth because the look like teeth. I haven't been able to find the proper name, so if anybody know...

  6. They look cool and your photograph of them is quite good. I say you're free to call them what you will.
