Cactus wood

Postby tumamoc » Wed May 16, 2012 2:28 am

I've seen plenty of saguaro and cholla skekltons, but today is the first time I believe I have seen the woody structure of a Ferocactus. This looks like a transplant that didn't make it--

Looks like a cross between a cholla and saguaro skeleton

:shock: wow that is strange What the heck.. I have never seen anything like that before. I have seen plenty of downed Feros. They often roll down hills in AFNM. Usually they are empty inside..
(except once, one was filled with all those nasty gnats or whatever that eat the flesh after sagauros/feros/opuntia/echinocereus get the flesh necrosis, which yes I have seen it in all of them)
Here's to you, all you insidious creatures of green..er I mean cacti.
