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.

    I was doing a study on how different trees looked, and I’ve visited hundreds of websites full of pictures of different trees but the baobao is a little bit different of a tree than what I am used to seeing, to me, it looks a little bit strange! Thanks for the pictures anyways. =)

    Both the African Baobab & the Australian Boab trees lend themselves wonderfully to the artists interpretation.
    I love painting them myself. http://rex-woodmore.weebly.com
