Water is a very important need for us. Not only for us but also all living beings can not live without water. Wherever we travel we take a water bottle with us. But have you ever heard about mother nature’s water bottle? Yes, it is a tree that is filled with water. It is called “Baobab Tree’’. There are nine species and six of them are found in Madagascar. The ideal place to admire the baobab trees is in Morondava which is called the alley of baobab. But it can also be seen in Majunga and Tulear, as well as in the parks of Ankarafantsika. We can also find them in Africa and Australia. The water inside these trees helps to tolerate extreme climatic conditions. This tree is also called “reniala” which means ”mother of the forest” in Malagasy. The Baobab tree is an example of the amazing creations of our mother nature.

Ever heard of trees that bleed? No? Well, now you’re gonna.

When you travel 60 miles off the coast of Africa, you could find a land called Socotra which is called the Golapagos of the Indian Ocean as there are many species of animals and plants. There are trees that look like giant mushrooms which have a single trunk and branches that look like an umbrella. These trees are called “Dragon Blood Trees”. Why did these trees get that name? Because when we cut off their trunks, the red resin is like blood coming out from them. This resin is used for manufacturing varnish and lipstick. The leaves of these trees are used to make ropes. These trees take a long time to mature before they reproduce and live for about 600 years.
