Cycas media is a palm-like tall shrub native to woodlands of Queensland, Australia. The leathery, thick leaves are divided and grow from the center in a palm-like arrangement. All plant parts are considered highly toxic. However, the seeds are eaten by Aborigines after careful and extensive preparation to remove the toxins.
