Baobab near the Art building on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa
This may be the largest baobab I have found in Honolulu, though I think the
one at Foster Botanical Garden is larger.
The center picture has a few people at the lower right, for scale.
This baobab is almost a part of the building. It makes me wonder what
came first -- the art building or the baobab.
2015 update: I am told the tree was there first, and in fact
is the oldest tree on campus. Before the art building, this tree
shaded Gilmore Hall, built in 1935 and demolished in 1973.
For some reason, the label for this baobab includes the common name "dead
rat tree". It is easy to believe the name comes from the fallen fruits'
resemblance to dead rats. I once had a nice kitty give me a dead rat
as a present, and there is some similarity.
For those of you into geocaching, this baobab lives near N21 17.964',
For those into interesting trees, UH has many interesting plants
and trees, though it helps to have a knowledgeable guide. This is the
only baobab I've spotted on the campus (so far).
