Agave & Agave Seeds

There are a couple of wildly growing agaves where I walk my dogs and today I took a couple of it's seeds home. I'm not sure the name of this agave so it needs to be identified. I think all agaves reach the end of it's life when you see them showing their beautiful blooms and seeding. But again I'm not sure about this. The agave which I took these seeds was already dead. Just this long stalk that holds the seed pods standing up as high as eight feet. I have to break the stalk down to the ground and collect them. I was able to collect hundreds of these flat, circular, black seeds in their seed pods. I'll try to grow these seeds and I'll let you know if I'm successful with it.
