Baobabs near Andavadoaka, Madagascar - Adansonia, which is the generic name for this tree, reach heights of 5 to 30 m (16 to 98 ft) and have trunk diameters of 7 to 11 m (23 to 36 ft). Baobabs store water inside the swollen trunk (up to 120,000 litres / 32,000 US gallons) to endure the harsh drought conditions. Some baobabs are reputed to be many thousands of years old. Amazing!
During a summer vacation to central California, one of the caches I found was inside an olive tree similar to this one. Living on the east coast, I had never seen an olive tree before and I thought they looked so cool.
