History: (Daredevil I#12) – When Daredevil was badly wounded in battle in the Savage Land, Ka-Zar needed the juice of the Ju-Ju berry to heal him. After a long trek through the jungle, Ka-Zar found the berries guarded by a savage "killer plant," one with wide gaping jaws, sharp red teeth and eight leafy arms, each seemingly razor sharp. Ka-Zar fought the plant back with a club but a second plant ensnared him, leaving Ka-Zar to cry for help from Zabu.

(Daredevil I#13) – As Ka-Zar struggled to avoid being eaten by the killer plants, Zabu launched himself at the plants then Ka-Zar lit the plants on fire, hoping to kill them forever. Ka-Zar gathered the Ju-Ju berries to help his friend.
