If this tree ever made it to america it would become illegal, look at what we did to cannabis.
U2's last great album was named The Baobab Tree.
So does it live for 5,00 years or is it immortal?
I totally want to climb those trees
Legend is the baobab used to be a beautiful tree and it boasted about this. God was so angry, he reached down, ripped it out of the ground and re-planted it upside down.
The Baobab tree is also found in the Caribbean, mainly on former sugarcane exporting islands.
Not sure about all African countries, but in Tanzania they also call this the "Upside down tree", presumably because the branches look more like roots. There's an interesting story about how the tree grew so big that God turned it upside down.
5000 years eh, that tree doesn't look a day over 4980
How do I go about purchasing one of these, or how much would it cost?
You can buy seeds online
It's no Ticket Oak
Simba shall be the new king of pride rock!
The Giving Tree IRL
I used to rate a tree on how climbable it was
This is so My Side of the Mountain…
I think I saw this thing on Ray Mears where these tribes people mentioned how women sometimes give birth in these trees
that's a huge bitch!
The description of these trees remind me of a fictional book I read, but I don't remember what it was called….man this is going to bug me.
I find this difficult to fap to.
Great post Chive…the power of mother nature!
i would love to try and build something out of that tree though i have a feeling its very dense and probably dulls blades fast, but still the amount of wood you could get out of it, its an incredable thought
is this the same type of tree Rafiki lived in?
There's a Chuck Norris joke in here somewhere. Anyone?
dont share this too much…or the world will find out and take it for themselves and we will no longer have these beautiful trees -love circelli
I do not much like to take the tone of a moralist. But the danger of the baobabs is so little understood, and such considerable risks would be run by anyone who might get lost on an asteroid, that for once I am breaking through my reserve. "Children," I say plainly, "watch out for the baobabs!" http://larvatusprodeo.net/files/2011/08/children_…
