Prickly Pear Cactus

Opuntia microdasys to give its scientific name, or bunny ears cactus, is a desert species and native to Northern Mexico and regions as far as Arizona, US. It is deceptively harmless, but its tiny spines can be easily dislodged and embedded in the skin. The best way to remove the tiny spines is with a pair of tweezers.

How to care for your Prickly Pear
