A camel cannot climb a tree. But a camel's foot can! The camel's foot climber is a gigantic climber with a stem 80 cm in diameter. It owes its name to its cleft leaves which look like the footprints of a camel. Botanists, however, remember the two brothers, John and Casper Bauhin, who were both botanists, whenever they see the camel's foot leaf with its two lobes. Hence its botanical name is Bauhinia Vahlii.
