Boab tree — even the name sounds bulky

Australia is the oldest continent on earth, separated by sea from any other land a looong time ago. As a result, most of its flora and fauna is rather unusual, sometimes strange.

Take platypus or a kangaroo as an example.

Driving through Kimberley region of Western Australia, we had a chance to see one more of the lands mysteries - boab tree.
