In Arizona we call it Cactus. Also known as the jumping cholla.

Or in the slang terms "AAAAAARRRRGGGHHH SHIT"

Woah, and I just thought cacti stuck individual spines in you... well that makes nettles and thistles look a whole lot better as hiking companions.

oh yeah these guys suck, they call it jumping cholla because these thorned pods of pain can fall off in a stiff wind. Caught one around 4 inches long on the back of my calf, it stings, but what gets you is the itch/burning after you take the thorns out. Prickly pear is worse though, the thorns are tiny usually less than a centimeter long, and their are hundreds of them. you brush up against one in shorts and your leg will be covered in thorns, itches like crazy, hard as hell to get out, usually use duct tape of elmers glue.

Canadian "jumping cactus" grows in patches not secured to the ground. Stick to your shoes and get flung onto your legs. They dont itch, but theyre barbed and stick in about an inch if they get you good.

level 3

Ugh, I hate jumping cholla. Got one in me when I was running through the brush at 5 or 6 years old.

Have these in Canada also. Tourists dont beleive that cactus can jump. Jokes on them when they have to pull 2-inch long barbed spines out of their ass cheek

Everything in Arizona makes you yell fuck very loud. you have to assume everything pokes stings or bites.

I do not know the name of anything in this god forbidden state just beware of all do not even place your hand on a block wall to lean on. scorpion in the crack will get you. What is that a gotcha.
