Short or tall, the mopane can be spotted by its butterfly-shaped leaves.
A fan of hot, arid lowlands, the Mopane does not provide shade for grassland inhabitants. Since the leaves face the sun with the least surface area possible, these trees allow sunshine to reach the ground around where it is rooted. Similar to the baobab, the Mopane has nutrient-rich leaves which feed people and animals. Its wood is also very valuable in making instruments, houses, fences, and flooring.
Fun Facts: The wood of the mopane is resistant to termites.
