  3. A baobab christened Tsitakakoike and considered to be the largest in Madagascar at 27.30m circumference lost several branches and began to collapse in early 2018. Faced with the demise of this giant, which was considered sacred to the people of nearby Andombiry village, locals set out to measure other trees in the area. In May of that year, they came upon an even more gargantuan specimen with a girth of 28.82m. It has been named Tsitakakantsa in homage to Tsitakakoike – which roughly translates as ‘a song sung on one side cannot even be heard on the other’!
