Fwd: Socotra Island !!!!!: Friends, this is interesting and I thought of sharing with all you botanist friends:

The Mysterious Socotra Island (Indian Ocean )

Welcome to the Alien lands of Socotra , with strange trees like the Dragon Blood Tree! You would be inclined to think you were transported to another planet – or traveled to another era of Earth’s history. Socotra Island , which is part of a group of four islands, has been geographically isolated from mainland Africa for the last 6 or 7 million years. The archipelago features narrow coastal plains, a limestone plateau with caves, and mountains which rise to 1,525 meters above sea level.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
 
A Dragon’s Blood Tree (Dracaena cinnabari) is seen in front of the Skund mountains on the island of Socotra , Yemen . The tree is so named because any injury to the bark results in a deep red liquid excreting from the scar compared in the past to the “Blood of Dragons”.
