Socratea exorrhiza, the Walking Palm or Cashapona, is a palm native to rainforests in tropical Central and South America. It can grow to 25 meters in height, with a stem diameter of up to 17 cm. The palm is pollinated by beetles, and various organisms consume its seeds or seedlings.
This gigapan has been taken close (approx. 20 km away) to the frontier town of Puerto Maldonado in the Region of Madre de Dios.

There seems to be some stitching irregularites.
