The Teapot Ifaty, Toliara, Madagascar, 2006a-809x1024“No other tree combines this amazing form with a gigantic size. Protected by a reserve on the west coast of Madagascar, Ifaty, this tree is named for its resemblance to a teapot. Its sparse branches which resemble roots grow only on the upper part of the shaft and give the baobab surmom the “shaft backwards”. This would have 1200 years and the ability to store more than 31,000 gallons of water. “
