Description

The girth of most baobabs is way out of proportion to their height, invoking the image of a stubby, fat tree (see Purdue University, FNR-250 for information about fats and other lipids in trees). The enlarged trunk is used to store water, not fat, for the tree's use during long dry seasons. Read more about this interesting species.
