Artist's Description

Candelabra trees are found in East Africa near the equator and in the East Indies. This one was found in the Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, Africa. They flourish in the savannah biome. It can grow up to 30-40’ tall (10m). The branches all grow out from one trunk, and look like cactuses growing near the top, giving it the shape of a candelabra.
In mid winter it has little yellow flowers and is beautiful, but poisonous! If a single drop from the white sap comes in contact with skin, it blisters. It can blind you if it touches the eyes or in breathing the fumes. The sticky poisonous latex and its sharp spines keep animals from feeding on it. Isn’t nature something!
