The Legend...Baobab was among the first trees on earth. It saw a tall palm tree & cried..it wanted to be taller. God granted his wish. Then Baobab cried for flowers like the flame tree. The wish was granted. Baobab saw the fig tree & wanted fruit. God became angry, & pulled Baobab up & thrust its head in the ground to keep it quiet. Baobab is leafless for most time of the year and lives on the supply of water stored in its trunk. The biggest & oldest known Baobab tree is about 6000 years old
