Surreal Giants

One of the Seychelles Islands called Praslin preserves an amazing palm forest largely unchanged since prehistoric times. There you find the famous „coco de mer“ (Lodoicea maldivica), from a palm-tree once believed to grow in the depths of the sea, which is the largest seed in the plant kingdom. Seems to me like a place of surreal giants.

Location: Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, Praslin Island, Seychelles
