Angolan Mopane woodlands

WWF Abstract

No tree is quite like the mopane of Angola and Namibia. This slim, gray-trunked tree has a rough bark and a sparse crown of rigid, irregular branches. Yet its leaves are beautiful and elegant, shaped like butterflies. A variety of animals live in the mopane forests, including elephants, black rhinos, zebra, cheetahs, leopards, lions, and many types of antelopes.
