A friend of mine cut off this nice section of a prickly pear cactus while in Texas, I am unsure of the species and was wondering if someone could please help me make a proper ID on this one.

Thanks :grin:

They are spines.

This link will explain why they cause epic blowage once stuck in some painful spot of your finger, or in your experience ferrel_human the mouth.:grin:

You can easily remove glochids from your fingers by scraping them off using a very sharp razor blade (those you use for grafting on pereskiopsis)

Scraping a couple of times keeping the blade in a hook of 90 degrees will do the trick.:thumbup:
