  1. Whoohoo, the one baobab species in Australia and you got it :) I never knew they were called Boab, that's easy enough to remember. Posted 3 years ago

''Adansonia gregorii'', commonly known as the boab, is a tree in the family Malvaceae. As with other baobabs, it is easily recognised by the swollen base of its trunk, which forms a massive caudex, giving the tree a bottle-like appearance. Endemic to Australia, boab occurs in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and east into the Northern Territory. It is the only baobab to occur in Australia, the others being native to Madagascar and mainland Africa and the Arabian Peninsula .
