Capa de Leon 10

A Traveler's Tale

???????????Staghorn Fern or Elkhorn Fern.

This is the actual photo of the half dozen or more of these plants in my yard.  The local name of this plant is Capa de Leon  (lion’s cape) probably because of the shape of the plant when it’s mature.  It actually belongs to the family of  platycerium, also known as staghorn fern or elkhorn fern because of the unique shape of its fronds that has some semblance in shape to the horn of an elk.
