Plannies or Plant-Animals - G. W. Thomas

"SOURCE: "The Vanishing Venusians" by Leigh Brackett (Planet Stories, Spring 1944)

DESCRIPTION: "...The colonists had shortened plant-animal to planimal, and then just planny..." ("The Vanishing Venusians" by Leigh Brackett)

NOTES: Many of the life forms on Venus appear to be animal in nature but are actually plants who have mimicked animal mobility. These include the Flower People and the Flower Hounds."
