I agree, a picture is almost a must. Besides, I want to see this 6ft opuntia.

Opuntia can be hard to ID at times. If you could give an area or region where the pad came from could help with the ID.

Must be some mean critters to warrant a pair of welding gloves :lol:
Know the filling to well John, the snows and mostly bitter cold took it's toll on some of my opuntias.

There not really hair, they are spines. The one in my avator looks friendly but would draw blood in a heartbeat.
Heres another one- O. trichaphora.
