Empty seed pods.
With their crop of seed spread to the wind these casuarina seed pods are ready to drop onto the ground.
They look harmless enough, and they are, unless they come into contact with the soft part of a bare foot!
Even then the damage is never long lasting, no cuts or stings, just discomfort until one moves off them. Perhaps they are the single reason for the rubber thong becoming synonymous with the beach.
