Mimosa this special ability, it has a certain historical roots. Its hometown is in tropical South America, Brazil, where heavy winds and heavy rains often occur. Whenever the first drop of rain hits the leaves, it immediately leaves closed, petiole drooping to avoid the storm damage it. This is an adaptation to changes in the external environment. In addition, the mimosa movement can also be seen as a self-defense, the animal touched it a little, it closes the leaves, the animals will not eat it.
