    The family definitely appears to be Euphorbiaceae. Not sure it's a true Euphorbia though. You might try http://www.desert-tropicals.com/ - they're my favorite datasource for Euphorbs (my first botanical obsession.) I'm almost certain I've seen this plant on there.
    Let me know if you'd like to trade cuttings! I have a few really neat ones, including E. poisonii, which does, in fact, look as cool as it sounds.

    PS - Er, E. poisonii isn't the one I was thinking of... but it looks like a dead purple-and-orange stick except for the little rootlets on the bottom of the sections and the little yellow/white flowers it makes. It's a must-have for those that appreciate weird-shaped plants.

    Hmm... I know E. ferox is on my want list... but which one it is, I'm not too sure.
    I'm getting ready to bring in my houseplants for fall, so this weekend I'll try to take some pics/do inventory of what I have for trade. If you're looking for cacti/succulents, I can find some interesting things to offer. I'll PM you.

    Hey Joe, PM'd yaz back, as far as i have been able to get info this is what they call the African Palm Tree type of Euphorbia, from what i gather it is a much sought after plant. Im trying to find a decent site with good info and care but so far on slow **** dial up its not getting me to far.. I did come across these sites though,
    the first link seems to be a good one. I guess i got lucky mine has the little tiny leafs and nice purple colored spines where as others of the Ferox dont have the tiny leafs and deeper purple color spines.
