Creeping Devil - The First Cactus

This is a photo of the creeping devil cactus, the long one in front of the other cactus. This particular cactus was the very first one planted at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. It grows along the ground and the older parts of the cactus die off as the plant grows. In this way, it moved very slowly along the ground, probably one of the few mobile plants in the world.
