Let’s talk about another park icon today! Animal Kingdom’s enormous Tree of Life.
The “tree” is 145 feet tall, and it’s body is made up of Oil derricks! There are 400 animal carvings in the tree and its base is home to the attraction “It’s Tough to Be a Bug”. It has 45 secondary branches and more than 700 tertiary branches…. Nearly 8,000 branch-ends come off the tree and it hosts 102,583 man-made leaves!

I love the Tree of Life with all the carvings and seeing it lit up this year, it was so pretty and the films projected on to it were fun too
youve got to love the tree of life. Last time I went they were replacing all of the old leaves with the kind they use now for night time stuff. I am looking forward to seeing it at night
