Fun fact! The trunk of the baobab tree can grow so huge that one tree in South Africa, known as 'Big Baobab', has a circumference of 47 meters and even a bar for 60 people inside the trunk! Baobabs grow in arid regions and store massive amounts of water in their stems to cope with seasonal droughts. https://upload.facebook.com/projectnoah/...
