10/29.- Black River tour, mango tree


In this picture you can see a huge mangrove tree. There are several different species of mangroves. The one you see is one of the tallest. These trees are the only ones that can survive in salt water. The roots come out of their branches and sink into the waters of the river. In some parts of the river their branches are so tall and compact that they form a tunnel. Small fish and other animals take refugee from the crocodiles and other predators among the roots of these trees.
