This cactus is a desert prickly pear and has deep green skin, fewer spines, and clear yellow flowers.
Its technical name is Opuntia engelmannii or Opuntia phaeacantha.
Prickly pear cacti have flattened pads connected by brittle joints.
I previously showed you the Beavertail Prickly Pear cactus or Opuntia basilaris. It has gorgeous pink flowers that look like tissue paper flowers. Click here Beavertail Cactus and Flowers
Tomorrow I will show you the purple prickly pear cactus.
