True. Although the fever tree itself has got nothing to do with malaria, they flourish in areas where there are swamps in which the mosquitoes breed.

Wildflowergirl, in connection with that fever trees.

Another connotation that the trees have with malaria, is that the old pioneers believed that when they slept under a fever tree, they got the "fever", therefore the name, fever tree. And as Rooies said, it was not the trees, but the environment :thumbs_up:

False. the enemy can be a secretary bird/ or any of the snake eagles or suricate/ mongoose/ me with anything I can lay my hands on, be it a knife/ brick/ gun/ whatever is close that can kill a snake too close to me.
