Bats love the nectar of this flower and it is great to watch them come to it. I am anxious to one day capture a photo of a bat drinking nectar from the saguaro flower.
Remember from my earlier cactus posts, each of these cactus arms and ribs are very, very heavy.
When the cactus dies, the Saguaro ribs are great to use for other items. I like to be around natural woods, stones, etc.
I have saguaro ribs used in my bedroom furniture and it is gorgeous and makes me feel at home. I am an Arizona desert rat after all.
