Definition of zamang :
An immense leguminous tree ( Pithecolobium Saman) of Venezuela. Its branches form a hemispherical mass, often one hundred and eighty feet across. The sweet pulpy pods are used commonly for feeding cattle. Also called rain tree.
- Many of the pupunha palms grew under the shadow of this zamang, but not the tallest ones. - "Popular Adventure Tales", Mayne Reid.
- Once the cable was let go, they must inevitably pass under the limb of the zamang; and if that caught the toldo, it would sweep off the frail roof like so much spider's- web. - "Popular Adventure Tales", Mayne Reid.
- It was observed to look forward and upward toward the branch of the zamang, as if the object it dreaded was in that quarter. - "Popular Adventure Tales", Mayne Reid.
