I posted this almost a month ago in the quasi carniverous disscussion group... so far have ran into a lot of disbelief and no help... so I am going to try here
My fiancee keeps telling me about this plant he ran across several years ago, he really wants to know what it is called.
Apparantly it is rather short, solid short stock, lots of woody vines with lots (masses) of thick thorns. Bark was brownish red, thorns are blackish red. when you touch it one of its branches all the vines/branches curl tightly around the spot that was touched.
No, it is not from a movie, several people back up the description, and no, none of us are insane. Any "useful" help is appreciated.
