looky what I rescued
This little fellow was in the guttering above one of the apartments in our complex. I ask the maintenance guy if I could have it when they got around to cleaning the gutters. The poor thing was all shriveled up and the dirt around it was bone dry when he handed it to me. I put the bag in a loaf pan and filled the pan level full of water. The dirt is about dry again. Next time I'm in a big box store I need to look for a planter for it, so I can get it potted and outside with the rest of my cactus.
I have no idea what kind of cactus it is, but I think it is a type of prickly pear. I have seen prickly pears around Phoenix that have a more elongated pad than the classic round pads. Wonder what type and color of flower it has when it blooms? And what the tunas (fruit) taste like, cause evidently it tastes good to some bird.
