Ficus elastica

One more time this wonderful Ficus elastica in its native environment in Panama...

Noch einmal diesen herrlichen Gummibaum in seiner natürlichen Umgebung in Panama...

Ancora una volta questo gigante Ficus elastica nel suo ambiente naturale in Panama...

...and for comparison the one in my home where the whole trunk is as big as one aerial root above.

...und zum Vergleich jenen bei mir zuhause. Der ganze Stamme ist hier so dick wie oben eine Luftwurzel.

...e come paragone quello a casa mia.

At the Biomuseo (The Biodiversity Museum: The Panama Bridge of Life)
designed by Frank Gehry

I really learned a thing or two about how Panama changed the world as the land masses emerged from the sea three million years ago.

Panama City as time goes by
