A Fuzzy Top

Some cactus seem to be stuck in the 1960s. Actually, one theory is that these excessive spines act to shade the growing tip of the cactus and at the same time protect the softer portions of the plant from animals that might enjoy a snack. If you are tempted to touch these spines to see if they are soft or hard, I suggest that you try very carefully because soft or hard, they are very sharp.
