It looks like the land time forgot. I cannot imagine the planning effort necessary to pull off such an incredible journey of a lifetime.

The Baobob is from the Spiny Desert just west of Fort Dauphin. It is Adansonia Phony.

Gary, according to a friend of mine who is well versed in baobobs, that's A. za, not A. phony(rubrostipa).  I've no idea myself...

Here are some pix taken in Madagascar in November, '03.  Looks like we both found the same Baobab.

Saw thousands of Bizzys...none were silver

Also thousands of Triangles on hillsides

Lemurs, Snakes and Chameleons were everywhere

An amazing country!

That last one with the torn-up skin is a Giant Day Gecko........ :(

From a handbook on the care of Day Geckos:

 

"Giant day geckos are difficult lizards to handle safely – safely for them! These lizards do not like to be restrained. They will writhe in your grasp, often tearing their skin badly, and will become moderately stressed if restrained. The skin of all day geckos tears very easily."

Did not know about the skin thing when I grabbed it....after that, I just looked at geckos...didn't touch them.

The skin does regenerate quickly.   :)
