Opuntia erinacea

Very sharp spines - like needles !

Can you get liquid from these, if say one was stranded in the desert without water? Would be a prickly job!

I suppose you could get some liquid from it, but not very much - The pads are rather thin ... and very prickly. So it would be difficult, and probably not worth the bother ... unless you were almost dehydrated.
