The legend of the African Baobab Tree: Many years ago, when animals and people were created, God gave each of them a tree. The hyena came last and was given the baobab tree. He was not pleased by this and out of spite planted the tree upside down with the roots sticking out from the top. Another version tells that the hyena was late and only the Baobab tree was left to distribute as nobody else wanted this tree. Full with anger, the hyena planted the tree upside down.
