Aloidendron dichotomum (Orange River)

This Aloidendron dichotomum was photographed in a beautiful Kokerboom Forest near the Orange River which is on the border of Namibia. It has a rich history with the San people who used large trunks of dead trees to hollow out to form quivers for their arrows. They also used them as a natural fridge. Water, meat and vegetables are stored inside it. (Mind blown 🤯) The fibrous tissue of the trunk has a cooling effect as air passes through it, so it’s a so-called natural fridge.There’s been a serious drought in that part of the country so there were many Kokerbooms dying.
