The peculiar thing about Ticktrefoils is their pod, which has it's own word - loment. A loment is a kind of pod that is pinched between each seed so that they can break apart easily. The pod has little velcro-like hairs that help it stick to an animals fur. As the animal wanders around, the seed sections break apart and fall to the ground, thus dispersing the seeds.
