The papaya seed can be dispersed by animals, just like many other seeds from different plants. You can find more information of this when you look online, this is going to give you the range of animals which can disperse the papaya seed and which enables it to grow and thrive in the perfect climates.

You will find that it is going to be the usual types of animals which are categorized within the insect family as they are the ones which fly from plant to plant and spread the seed successfully.

You will find that there are many different plants which ensure that their seeds are dispersed in this manner and that the process is easy. The animal will go one plant and then as they travel the seed is either going to fall off them and land elsewhere or they are going to take it to different plants where it can also thrive and grow to produce more seeds. The wind will also have a working aspect here as they are going to carry the seed after it has fallen off the insect which is carrying it and therefore it is going to land a distance away from the mothering plant.

The fact that the papaya plants disperse their seeds by animals ensures that they are not going to be too close together and that two plants which are 'related' are going not going produce seeds together as these are not going to be the best papaya plants which can be grown. They plants have developed this method to ensure that they can thrive and cover a large distance of space so they are not going to grow in one certain area and can reproduce successfully without there being any problems.
