This Palo borracho was taken in Cordoba, Argentina recently. Palo borracho means “drunken stick” in Spanish. It is thought that baobabs (before they were baobabs) originated in South America and hence their relations are found here. The palo borracho occurs in Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil. Its trunk is bottle shaped, much like the baobab, but with swelling at the bottom of the trunk which makes it look like it may fall over, hence the name.
