Existence of Grandidier’s baobab. Duration: Hundreds to thousands of yearsAdansonia grandidieri, sometimes known as Grandidier’s baobab, is the biggest and most famous of Madagascar’s six species of baobabs. This imposing and unusual tree is endemic to the island of Madagascar, where it is an endangered species threatened by the encroachment of agricultural land.The long-lived Grandidier’s baobab is in leaf from October to May, and flowers between May and August. The flowers, said to smell of sourwatermelon, open just before or soon after dusk, and all the pollen is released during the first night. The tree is pollinated by nocturnalmammals, such as fork-marked lemurs. These lemurs move through the canopies, inserting their snouts into the white flowers and licking nectar from the petal bases, resulting in pollen being deposited in the lemurs’ faces.

Tiny Baby Yellow Spider Mess

I’ve seen balls of baby spiders in cities, but never in the woods, this was awesome! They were all in a little ball and when I blew on them they started scattering and dropping for safety like little mountain repellers.
