These lightly stick to my dog when she walks in the field by our home. But if they are not immediately removed- they burrow in, the tail breaks off, and sometimes they get into her skin. I saw another person Post a similar seed pod with a similar corkscrew tail and you suggested it could be a seed from a stork plant. I looked at the picture of the stork plant also posted- and I donÕt think IÕve seen one of those in Denver, Colorado. IÕd really like to identify the plant from which this came!

    To my eyes these seeds pods have the diagnostic keys of stork-bill plant: the long slender spiral tail, and long seed pod with beak-like appearance. Check out the included link below for one of the stork-bill species that grows in CO, the redstem stork’s bill (Erodium cicutarium). Scrolling down for the distribution map. But not having the plant & its flowers, I still could be wrong. Please resubmit if you are able to find the plant(s)of these seeds pods. Best wishes!
