This is one tree an elephant wouldn't be able to mess with.

My other half recently did the same with several crowns of rhubarb. Results weren't quite as spectacular though.

!! My friend and I have been drawing baobab trees all wrong!

iTibbi 2173 days ago

They look like the trees I first drew ✎ as a child. Wow, they really existed! ❃

I just love those explanatory genesis stories. :) Even then, the hyena = crazy.

yeahyeahyeah909 2174 days ago

haha crazy hyenas. Some kind of adaptation I suspect? Argh all of this Biology study is doing my head in...

Wow. That is quite remarkable! I continue to be delighted and amazed my nature and your photos xx

Wasn't the baobab also known as the 'Tree of Life' because the leaves, seeds and fruit are all edible and can be used to make thickener, vegetable oil, etc

They DO look as if they were standing on their heads waggling their roots in the air, hooray!

What an excellent bit of mythology. Crafty hyena..would surely help him be remembered above the others.

Jikan 2174 days ago

those are fantastic :)

I love baobab trees! For some reason they always remind me of broccoli.

CJTarbett 2174 days ago

Love these. Apparently some of these have been around longer than pretty much anything on earth. These are holy, revered trees with special significance to native habitants.

If I was a tree, this is the kind I would be.

Anu2008 2174 days ago

Very interesting trees!

I could never decide if they were confused carrots or Lovecraftian dholes. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhole_(Cthulhu_Mythos) )

Tanzbar 2174 days ago

how amazingly beautiful. And I agree, I think the Hyenas are still laughing

I think those trees look really cool. They almost don't look real in the photo though!
