Cactus tree


The euphorbia is fairly common species in Kenya. This isn't one. Or it may be some sub species. In any case, this was the first one I had seen with these weirdly shaped "leaves".

The tree is about 14 feet tall (4.3 meters). We spotted it at the game preserve Melewa River Lodge is on.

Interesting why it would be named "euphorbia." :) I don't think it would have anything to do with the needles.

If a Eupohorbia tree gets its picture taken, is it still one- or isn't it?

Existential ponderings ensue...
