Crazy tree. They say the animals were each given a tree to plant. The hyena got the baobab and planted it upside down...

wow, they're so beautiful!
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!
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.
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.
those are fantastic :)
I love baobab trees! For some reason they always remind me of broccoli.
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.
Very interesting trees!
I could never decide if they were confused carrots or Lovecraftian dholes. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhole_(Cthulhu_Mythos) )
michael_elliott @stephenfry is it always the hyenas, the coyotes, etc who do all the beautiful & crazy mistakes, huh? oh and ravens. what animal would you be? lol
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!
