Here you have a bunch of chestnuts. Yum! Do Buckeyes avoid these delicious nuts that so mimic their symbol, but are actually edible? Many omnivorous wild animals appreciate buckeyes, particularly rodents and Ohio Staters. Wolverines find them particularly unappealing, sometimes indigestible. Young Ohioans sometimes evolve into Wolverines, as I can attest. I still remember the reactions of my Ohio high school mates when they heard which university I would attend. Although as I remember it, the one guy headed to an agriculture program at Ohio State took even more flack. Hopefully we've all evolved since those days at Reserve.
