Towering wood

A huge tree is what comes to your notice as soon as you enter the Periyar Wildlife Reserve's Safari booking center. Wish I knew what tree this is :-) These trees are home to Black Langurs - it was the first time I saw the black ones and I thought of it as a sign of good luck.

OMG, Thomas. This reminds me of trees we saw in Hawaii whose roots systems seemed to be their trunks! I wonder if it's the same tree species?

You wouldn't want to be around these at night, I don't think. They belong in the Lord of the Rings where they can move around and talk. Ents. smile
Thomas Mathew: Oh yes Ginnie, these are the kind of trees that you generally avoid on a night prowl in the jungle. Think of it when a thunderstorm or lightning hits them and these come crashing down smile
