TEXAS (KXXV) -

This unique "flower" looks like it bloomed right out of a Dr. Seuss book.

Ranger Steve with Texas Parks and Wildlife found this colorful wool sower gail in Atlanta State Park in Northeast Texas. 

The wool sower gail is created when wasps lay its eggs in a white oak, explains Texas Parks and Wildlife. When the eggs hatch, chemicals stimulate the plant to produce this unique gail. The gail provides food and protection for growing wasps!

The park is located near Lake Wright Patman.
