A water caltrop - also known as water chestnut, buffalo nut, bat nut, devil pod, ling nut, and singhara, amongst other names. Apparently the reason water caltrops are eaten as part of the Chinese Mid Autumn festivities (apart from the fact that this is the season for them) is that the Chinese for bat 🦇has the sound 'fu' in it, which is the word for luck. #watercaltrop #buffalonut #batnut #devilpod #lingnut #singhara #菱角 #chinesetradition #midautumnfestival #蝙蝠

That's an evil looking nut. Viciously pointy sharp, too.

How could I NOT buy some creepy AF demonic heads from the produce section at the asian market? #BLACKNUT #devilpod #DEMONS #tistheseason

No, it’s not a colony of bats in flight, nor is it a handful of shrunken demon heads, it’s the black metal version of a pumpkin spice latte: water caltrop! On Sunday, to celebrate the best time of the year, I’m gonna boil them up and gobble them down and cackle like a witch with my besties. Happy (almost) Rocktober, y’all. #batnut #devilpod #autumn #watercaltrop #dontbescurred #tasty #october

Kacang tanduk. [Trapa bicornis]. As devilish as they looks, they gather many names: water caltrop, devil pod, bat nut, goat head, bull nut, ling nut, lin kok, ling kio nut, singhara.
Edible seeds of an aquatic plant cultivated in China & Indian subcontinent for at least 3,000 years old.

Odd Folks (@stuff_duck_company)

A while back, I came across a pair of pods, devil pods, as some call them. They were given to me from a friend of my children's father. I loved them, but I stashed them away, to never see the light of day till just recent, when I unearthed them. So, tonight, I made the first of my Odd Devil Folk. The more I look at him, the more he grows on me. Hahaha!!! Devil Folk WIP made from water caltrop pods, aka Devil pods or nuts, water chestnut, buffalo nut, bat nut, ling nut, lin kok, ling kio nut, and singhara.
