Lots of strange things in the Amazon jungle, including fauna and flora. This odd tree caught my attention with it's inverted "U" shape that pushes up against the left foreground tree before continuing to the lower right corner. I don't remember anything else about this Amazon tree except it's odd shape, but the left foreground tree that it's rubbing against had some of the biggest and nastiest red ants I've ever seen. We were all very careful not to touch any because when they bite the venom burns for a long time. The indiginous people there have their sons lie down in a bed of those ants as a right of passage into manhood, under the thought that they need to be toughened up for the worse things that live in the Amazon jungle.
