is a perennial tree. Common names for it are Acacia horrida Cape Gum and Dev-Babul. It is found in Africa, Asia, India and South America. It frequently has thorns 8cm long. 
Additional recommended knowledge
Acacia horrida is used as forage for livestock, for its wood and for fuel.
Because of its huge thorns, it makes an excellent protective hedge. It used to be the most important tree for the tanning industry in South Africa, but extract from its bark leaves the leather with a rather bad smell. The tree produces good gum, but it is yellowish in color.
