Which fruits are carried by animals?

Animals are used as seed-carriers by many plants. Animal-dispersed seeds include those found in juicy fruits and hooked fruits. Fruits may be carried a long way from the parent plant by the animals. Juicy fruits, such as those of blackberry and hawthorn, provide birds and small rodents with tempting meals. The tough seeds are eaten with the fruit, but they pass through unharmed. Fruits with tiny hooks are produced by some plants. Common examples are Goosegrass and burdock. Oak acorns and hazel nuts are collected by Squirrels and stored. Sometimes seeds are dispersed by insects. Ants carry Snowdrop and sweet violet seeds, who are rewarded by juice from an oily knob on each seed.
