DRAGON BLOOD TREE

RARE DRAGON BLOOD TREES LOOK LIKE MUSHROOMS!

This camel sheltered from the sweltering 40 degree heat under an unusual tree that looks like a mushroom.

The Dragon Blood Tree is so rare it is only found on the Island of Soqotra, Yemen. The tree got its name because it oozes bright red resin. Photographer Edoardo Scepi took the photos of the trees and the camel cooling down, while he was visiting the island to do conservation work.

Soqotra is the only place in the world where you can find the Dragon Blood Tree.
