Baobab – The Upside Down Tree


The baobab is found in the savannas of Africa and Madagascar, mostly around the equator. It can grow up to 25 meters tall and can live for several thousand years. The baobab is leafless for nine months of the year. If you were to describe the baobab, you would say that it looks like it has been picked out of the ground and stuffed back in upside-down.
