A must watch: The Elephant Tree!
Watch the elephants knock the fruit out of the tree and all the animals eat
it off the ground. This is a real video from a French documentary about Africa. You may not understand French, but the video is funny.
There are trees that grow in Africa which, once a year, produce very juicy fruit that contain a high percentage of alcohol.
The tree is known as the "Elephant Tree" because elephants have a fondness for the fruit. Because there is a shortage of water in that area, as soon as the fruits are ripe, animals come there to help relieve themselves of the heat. You will easily know who has over-indulged!
The tree is the Marula tree. You can buy a great liqueur named "Amarula" which is made with the fruit and cream.
