Finally some trees! They advertise this as a forest. Hmmm...
Where are the leaves and why are the trees growing inside a big building?
**Scratches behind ear**
Anyway, it is wood and wood is for chewing...
But what a surprise. Ouch, my teeth! This wood is as solid as a rock.
Something is weird here.
I learned that this is the so-called petrified forest. The tree trunks are indeed stone. About 290 million years ago, long before there were wombats on Earth, a volcano erupted and a whole forest drowned in ashes and lava.
