While in Quartzite Az we went to many of the vendors that come to this area in Jan and Fed, some are there longer.
Anyway I took this photo of this cactus, actual name is Saquaro cactus. As i was looking and taking photos i found this very nice surprise lodged in one of the holes of the cactus.
The Saguaro can grow only in narrow environmental niches within the Sonoran Desert, usually below elevations of 3,500 feet. Freezing temperatures and frosts can kill or damage the delicate plant. Wild arms and drooping limbs may indicate that a particular plant survived a bitter winter.
These distinctive human-like arms begin to grow only in middle age, about 75 years, after achieving a height of 14 to 16 feet. The oldest, with dozens or more branches, have marked the passage of many years.
