Sometimes called the tree of life, baobabs provide shelter, food and water for animals and humans. Baobabs are also called the upside down tree because when they lose their leaves each year, they look like their roots are reaching for the sky.
Other interesting baobab facts? They live to be at least one thousand years old, elephants love to eat the bark during the dry season to get the moisture from the tree’s water reserves, and they only have leaves for three months of the year. An all around pretty cool tree, we think.
