This is a Baobab tree. Can store an enormous amount of water. What's funny are the comments on http://imgur.com/gallery/o3wLu "But it sits over the richest deposit of unobtanium on the planet. Obviously we have to blow it up and start strip-mining" & "Yeah, your mom used the "retaining water" excuse, too" etc

Vix prece finita, torpor gravis occupat artus: / mollia cinguntur tenui praecordia libro, / in frondem crines, in ramos bracchia crescunt, / pes modo tam velox pigris radicibus haeret, / ora cacumen habet; remanet nitor unus in illa.  (P.Ovidius Naso, Metamorphoses I, vv.547-551)

These trees can be found in the so-called Crooked Forest, in Poland, all of their trunks inexplicably bowing to the north. Adding to the weirdness, nobody knows how they got that way.
