Pachypodium namaquanum, also known as halfmens or elephants trunk, is a succulent plant of southern Africa. The genus name Pachypodium is from the Greek for "thick foot", an allusion to its swollen base, while the species name namaquanum is a reference to Namaqualand. It is a singled-stemmed plant. The warty trunk, thickset at the base and tapering to the top, is densely covered in sharp spines. Where damaged, the trunk produces side-branches that immediately curve back to the vertical. The very top of the plant usually bent to the north.
