Quiver tree (Aloe dichotoma) photographed in Quiver Tree Dolerite Park near Keetmanshoop, Namibia. This tree is eaten by the Kudu antelope as it acts as a repellant to parasites when absorbed into the animals bloodstream. The quiver tree takes its name from the bushmen's custom of hollowing out its branches to use as quivers for carrying their arrows.
