This is the Baobab tree, this tree you can find a lot in Africa. This trees can grow older than 1000 years. Monkeys really love to eat the fruits which grow on this tree, that's why this trees also used to be called 'monkeybreadtrees'. A lot of people in Africa think the tree owns magic powers. Because of that special nights are being held under the tree. Also there are a lot of stories to be told about this tree. This is one of them: The Baobab tree was very vain, he found himself to be the most beautiful tree in the whole wide world. A lot of Gods thought this was arrogant. In a bad mood they pulled him out of the ground and put him back there upside down?. That's why his tree roots have become his branches. It does look like that indeed!It can grow up over more than 20 metres...It's also called 'tree of life'. The bark, leaves and the fruit are being used in many traditional medicins.Thanks for your comment cinderfire!
What kind of tree is this and where do you find it? It sure looks old. Good puzzle tho.
