The seeds and heart of Jubaea taste very nice (like coconut) which unfortunately brings rodents.Rats will eat the palm heart of seedlings leaving the root system intact and the leaves lying on the ground as they do with many other palm species.I have lost many young Jubaea seedlings overnight that have been in the same position for years untouched.Once the seedlings are 3 or more years old and sun hardened the rats dont seem to touch them.
