This is the largest Baobab tree that I have ever seen when measured in
terms of girth. Every (baobab-)tree has a unique shape, and each would have an amazing story to tell if such a thing were possible! Such trees can be as old as a few thousand years. Their succulent trunks store water in times of drought. I always find that encounters with such majestic trees are deeply moving experiences as well, because they serve to refocus ones own perception of time and the relevance of an individual lifetime in ecological terms. I always come away from such an encounter feeling deeply humbled.
