    That’s a huge tree. I wonder how old is that tree.

      I didn’t know how old baobabs trees got so I went hunting:

      “Baobabs can’t be dated like most other trees. Some years they form no rings, and others they form more than one. So simply counting their rings doesn’t reveal much about their age.”

      “Some large individuals live to well over a thousand years of age. All baobab trees are deciduous, losing their leaves in the dry season, and remain leafless for eight months of the year. They can grow to between 5–25 m (16–82 ft) in height. They are in fact known both for their height and trunk’s girth.”
