Do you know the story of how they angered god? He picked them up, turned them over and stuffed them back in the ground. Hence their peculiar looks.

It's like a large strong arm reaching out of the ground.

Impressive. Though I still want to say that camels don't store water in their humps :-p

I was thinking the exact same thought as pendragon007 - they really do look like Dr. Seuss trees. And I adore the 'camels of the forest' idea, how brilliant.

This is just fantastic. The bark looks like tough skin instead of wood... beautiful.

That's just asking to be a pink floyd album cover.

Not only an awesome tree but a fun word to say: Baobab! :D

I agree with fryfan20 - this looks like something from Pixar.

Beautiful. Super beautiful. Goose-fleshy beautiful. Standing tall like proud leviathans.
