    These baobab trees on Madagascar are up to 800 years old, and are locally known as ‘mother of the forest’. The baobab forms a micro ecosystem of its own, supporting life for both animals and humans. Old hollow baobabs are a home to snakes, bats, bush-babies, bees, and sometimes even humans. More importantly, the tree is an important source of water. It can store up to 4,000 litres of water in its trunk. For Africa it is literally the tree of life.
