    Wow, great photo ! What type of tree is that? Do you know how old it is? Thanks,

      That is a Baobab tree, found in Madagascar, Africa, Australia, and the Arabian peninsula. Unfortunately I do not know the age of that one; I’ve read that carbon dating is the only accurate way to determine this. One was found to be over 1200 years old. As you can see, these are massive. They’re drought resistant, known to store up to 26,000 gallons in their trunks. I was in awe just standing near them.
