    They do look like shark teeth. I do like cacti, I can respect a plant that knows how to defend itself.

    After watching David Attenborough's latest, Green Planet (I think that is what it is called), I see all plants as mindful killers! They definitely appear to have a brain and a consciousness, which calls into question my vegetarianism! Is there nothing I can eat??!!

    I like this Rob.
    The jaunty angle is great and really suits the aspect of the plant.
    Both your and Dave's comments remind me of something I once read just before my first visit to Arizona: That the place doesn't really have plants, but it does have 'outdoor cutlery'.

    You could become a fruitarian, who only eat foods that can be harvested without killing the parent plant, but that is getting extreme.

    You certainly wouldn't want to put you hand in there for a day or two!

    It’s looking a little friendlier these days. Bad news for it.
