Elephants and Baobabs
The 2 photos are showing the same Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata – Affenbrotbaum) and damage done to the tree by elephants. This kind of damage is common in areas where a high elephant population occurs. The damage to the tree species is to such an extent that the tree is highly threatened and disappearing slowly.
Baobabs are valuable trees with many uses to man as well as animal, bird and insect species
