Dragon Blood Tree, Socotra, Yemen. Dracaena cinnabari, the Socotra dragon tree or dragon blood tree, is native to the Socotra archipelago in the Indian Ocean. It is so called due to the red sap that the trees produce.

The Last Paradise Socotra (Arabic: سُقُطْرَى‎‎ Suquṭra), also spelled Soqotra, is an island and a small archipelago of four islands in the Arabian Sea. The territory is part of Yemen, and had long been a subdivision of the Aden Governorate. In 2004, it became attached to the Hadhramaut Governorate, which is much closer to the island than Aden (although the nearest governorate was the Al Mahrah Governorate). In 2013, the archipelago became its own governorate, the Soqatra Governorate
