Baobab: the common name of a genus (Adansonia) containing eight species of trees, native to Madagascar, mainland Africa and Australia. Also known as the Bottle Tree, the trees typically store around 300 liters of water and often live over 500 years.
We have these in Australia too. It's a 'Strangler Fig', that envelopes an existing tree. Eventually, is impossible for the tree to survive and it dies. The original tree will rot completely away and the Strangler Fig is left as a lattice work hollow tube.
