Gnarled Tree in the Ngorongoro Crater _GS13141

Gnarled Tree in the Ngorongoro Crater. This is a Yellow-barked Acacia Tree (Acacia xanthophloea) that has been damaged by Elephant. Almost every tree of this type in the "Crater Forest" had evidence of Elephant feedings. It gnarls up in healing itself which is also probably protection against future Elephant damage.
