The monster tree is a Baobab, believed to be about 600 years old, and measuring about 40 feet at the base. The elephants rub the base and scar it up for a unique look, and the natives believe these trees fall from the sky like lawn darts. We decided not to winch up this tree for a photo, la The Gods Must Be Crazy.
