Ceiba, el árbol borracho

Saliendo del trabajo me encuentro con este curioso árbol, una Ceiba o palo borracho.  Curioso y espinoso.

The silk floss tree (Ceiba speciosa, formerly Chorisia speciosa), is a species of deciduous tree native to the tropical and subtropical forests of South America. It has a host of local common names, such as palo borracho (in Spanish literally "drunken stick") or paineira (in Brazilian Portuguese). In Bolivia it is called Toborochi, means "tree of refuge" or "sheltering tree". It belongs to the same family as the baobab and the kapok. Another tree of the same genusCeiba chodatii, is often referred to by the same common names.
