jumping cactus - cholla

The Chollas (on the left) are nasty: if you touch them, they seem to be jumping at you because they stick to you.­

This is one of many cholla cacti also known as "jumping cactus".­ it is notorious for very loose joint attachment, then the joints attach to hapless by-passers with the slightest brush.­ See more information here: en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Cylindropuntia_­fulgida.
