This one looks quite different from trees we know in our countries!
The amazing baobab (Adansonia) or monkey bread tree can grow up to nearly 30m tall and 11 m wide. Their defining characteristic: their swollen trunk are actually water storage – the baobab tree can store as much as 120,000 l of water to endure harsh drought conditions.
Baobab trees are native to Madagascar (it’s the country’s national tree!), mainland Africa, and Australia. A cluster of “the grandest of all” baobab trees can be found in the Baobab Avenue, near Morondava, in Madagascar.
