Sausage tree

Really, that's what it's called.

What else would you call them? Those are actually the fruits of this peculiar tree, not some tasty cured meats that someone hung from the branches to keep them away from the hyenas.

Up close, the "sausages" are some kind of potato-like tuber. We'd seen several of these trees before but this was my first opportunity to get a good picture, so I stood underneath the tree and aimed up. And after narrowly escaping getting conked on the head by several falling sausages, I decided that the picture above was quite good enough.
