Did you know that you can use a Quiver tree as a fridge? Surprisingly yes, you can hollow the trunk out to store your food inside it. Indeed, its fibrous tissue is having a cooling effect, therefore a natural fridge in the hot desert. The tubular branches of the tree San people use as their arrow quivers. Aloidendron dichotomum is this remarkable tree’s Latin name. Dichotomum means forked. View the photographs in this portfolio. You will see how beautiful these trees are. Undoubtedly a unique species. All our nature photographs are ready for a license and to purchase a fine art photographic print.
