Baobab You can find these strange-looking trees in Africa and Australia and most live for thousands of years. The baobab has an enormous trunk which is full of water. It can be 7-11 metres wide and some can hold up to 120,000 litres of water. The tree stores the water so it can survive during the difficult dry season.

Bamboo Bamboo grows in many different climates, from cold mountains to hot tropical forests. It can grow up to 30m tall. But bamboo isn’t a tree, it’s actually the largest member of the grass family. Bamboo is very useful because people use it as building material and food as well as for making furniture, paper or medicine. Bamboo also holds the record for being the fastest growing plant. It can grow 90cm in one day, so if you’re walking through a bamboo forest, stop for a while and watch. You’ll be surprised!
TIP! Try to guess the meaning of unknown words.
Use the following strategies:
• Read the words before and after the unknown word and think of the context.

Pitcher Plant Pitcher plants are very colourful, meat-eating plants with a ‘pitcher’ full of liquid. They are also called monkey cups because sometimes monkeys use them to drink water. The plant’s nectar attracts insects, which slip down the sides of the pitcher into the sticky liquid. There is no way to escape, so they drown and the plant ‘eats’ them. A species in Borneo has a large pitcher that can hold 3.5 litres of liquid, and sometimes even rats or lizards get trapped in there.
