Red means Danger
Red means Danger
    These blossoms may look beautiful and inviting, but look closer. Those thorns are even more terrifying and have a bite much more severe than even the rose. Due to the low precipitation in the desert, cactus plants have developed a wicked way to protect themselves from predators wanting to eat them for their moisture content. And if you've ever seen a cowboy wearing chaps while riding a horse, this is one of the reasons why. You don't want to brush up along one of these plants with only levis, while riding along at a full gallop.
