More info

The Mopane - Colophospermum mopane is a Southern African shrub or small tree that can grow to about 15 metres in height.

The bark is dark gray and strongly fissured, with leaves that look like butterfly wings.

The Mopane tree is best known as a host to the larvae of the Mopane moth (Gonimbrasia belina). The larvae feed on the leaves and lay their eggs on the leaves and bark. The Mopane worm is often eaten as a delicacy during season by locals, either dried or smoked over a fire.
