Baobabs
This is a Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata ). The genus is found throughout Africa and in Madagascar, some parts of Asia and Australia. They are often called “the tree of life”. Their trunks often reach 7 - 11 m in diameter, and the Glencoe baobab (usually considered the largest in existence, in south africa) had a diameter of 15.9 m until it split into two parts a few years ago. A single tree can hold up to 4,500 L (1,189 gal) of water.
