Ok so i was on a website and saw this riddle and i thought i figured out the answer and then i clicked to see the answer and it said mountains…idk how a mountain has roots that nobody sees, and i looked on a forum and people were arguing between kite and mountain….my thought was an airplane,

It has roots, (route) play on words kind of thing, it has a root thats never seen

It goes up up up and never grows

And its taller than a tree

Just my thought

@Mikem Mountains have roots. Here’s a geological society article about them.

It’s from the hobbit and there are a few more from hobbit. Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.

Answer: Teeth.

A box without hinges, key or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

Answer: Egg

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

Answer: Time
