African Fish Eagle on Sausage Tree

While observing the African Fish Eagle in one of my safaris, I was told of an astonishing mythical story about the Sausage Tree (Scientific Name: Kigelia Africana) that the bird had perched.

The tree bears sausage-like fruits that can grow to a length of up-to 100cms and weight to about 10 KGs. The fruits are eaten by some birds and animals. The myth behind this tree is that some tribe use the fruits for manhood enhancement and as the fruit grows so does the manhood.

For more details visit one of the Tanzanian Parks where this trees are found, one being #Tarangire National Park.
