A cancer; not on a human, but a tree…

Compare the size of the cancer with the size of a human (that is our guide, Mr. Gunadasa Pathirana)

It was last December when myself and three other batch mates made a visit to the Kanneliya forest reserve. Going into details, it is a tropical rain forest reserve, located south (south east to be frank) of the Sinharaja rain forest and is in collaboration with the KDN (Kannelia-Dediyagala-Nakiyadeniya) reserves.

We took the Kabbale Kanda route this time as I had covered all the other routes by then. On the descend, we came across this giant cancer in the tree… Observe its gigantic size (which actually over whelmed me with passion to learn more about these stuff…)
