Little Pricker

Always be alert and watching for all the nasties on the ground when walking around the desert! This baby Buckhorn Cholla will whoop your ass. The Joshua Trees also have deadly sharp tines on their ends. 🌵

  1. Chollas are brutal. The “Jumping Cholla” found in the Sonoran Desert are really bad, and take just a touch to nail you.

    • I’ve not heard of that version of Cholla. The other day at the Red Rock Overlook outside of town, a woman was walking around with a child in her arms, she approached a Joshua Tree. The kid was reaching for the end of the tines and I though OH NO! Do not touch that, child! Fortunately the mother pulled the child away in time. He’d have been screaming!
