    I know they live out in the west like in Arizona. Didn't they use to throw prisoners on to those cactuses many years back?

    I used to live in Tucson AZ and saw them everyday. People called Jumping Cactus "Teddy Bear Cactus" because it looked fuzzy with all the spines. As soon as you bump it the whole arm of the cactus breaks off and sticks to you. Ouch.
    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    I have some hardy Cholla in my yard. Cylindropuntia is the Genus.
