Cactus at Charles Darwin Station in Galapagos Islands

Crazy Cactus

On the Galapagos Islands you get to see some really strange kinds of Cacti.

Over a hundred years ago Charles Darwin had spotted a giant Galapagos tortoise eating one of these.

I wonder how they avoided getting thorns in their mouths :O

    How fantastic! I envy you this trip, you’ll have a blast. My wife and I were just tanklig about wants and wishes for future travel and South America was discussed.I too think this is just what the doctor ordered. Have fun and think of us poor laboring masses occasionally.
