Baobab Avenue, Madagascar. The most beautiful trees in the world!
The amazing baobab (Adansonia) or monkey bread tree can grow up to nearly 100 feet tall and 35 feet wide. Their swollen trunk are actually water storage – the baobab tree can store as much as 31,700 gallons of water to endure harsh drought conditions. Baobab trees are native to Madagascar (it’s the country’s national tree!), mainland Africa, and Australia. A cluster of "the grandest of all" baobab trees (Adansonia grandidieri) can be found in the Baobab Avenue, near Morondava, in Madagascar.
Avenue of the Baobabs - These amazing trees are also known as the boab, boaboa, bottle tree, and the upside-down tree. They van reach ages of up to 800 years old and heights of 98 feet (30 m). Some of the diameters of these trees can get up to 36 feet (11 m). They are very strong plants that are found between Morondava and Belon'i Tsiribihina in the Manabe region of western Madagascar.
