The meagma tree: A tree from the ficus family with a broad and tall trunk. Rises to a height of 20 meters and even more. Grows in places where the soil is saturated with iron and phosphorus. Its fruit is the main food source of the Meagmies, with whom it exists in symbiosis. In earlier times meagma trees grew on the island of Tetanuga only, but over the years they spread to other places with the help of the Meagmies. Inside its stem, there is a deadly toxin that is released in the form of gas when trying to cut it down or cut its branches. Members of a Kartician delegation who came to the island of Tetanuga to cut down meagma trees all perished suddenly after the first blow of the ax. The machines they brought with them rusted and disassembled within one day.
