16 Cool Pictures of Baobab Trees

Anyone who loves The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has heard of baobabs. They’re not fictional plants that grow on asteroids, though. They’re real, huge and odd-looking trees that grow on the African savannah. Their strange appearance can make a nondescript landscape look interesting, like a scene from a Dr. Suess book rather than a photo from Africa.
