Written for Challenge 691: Sprout at dw100.

Summary: Not everything is quite what it seems.

It was like stepping out into a rainforest. Lush greenery surrounded the TARDIS while the air was hot and humid. Unseen creatures warbled and hooted somewhere in the dense canopy overhead and the light that filtered through to the forest floor had a greenish hue.

“Are you sure we’re not on earth?” Martha asked.

“Absolutely; this is Fernoof.”

“It looks a lot like an earth jungle. Some of the plants resemble orchids, and why are there Brussels sprouts?”

“They’re not sprouts, they’re Fernoofian predators. Disguise themselves as vegetation to lure herbivores. Not very successful though; the natives don’t like sprouts.”
