Any roadside in India and the Himalaya will yield M. pudica bushes
in prickly abundance. A glance shows why it does what it does: as
a feathery light green bush, it is irresistable to cattle. At the 
first nibble, however, the entire thing collapses into a boring 
bundle of twigs and the cow browses off.
