Quiver tree (Aloe dichotoma) photographed on the road south to Aus, Namibia. Quiver trees are eaten by the Kudu antelope as it acts as a repellant to parasites when absorbed into the animal's bloodstream. The quiver tree is so called because of the bushmen's ancient custom of hollowing out the branches and using them for quivers to carry their arrows.
