Desert Critter?


This is what happens to cactus as it dies and petrifies.  My mom used to take pieces of these and put flowers in them to make planters.  Not my idea of fun after picking one of them up once and finding several scorpions underneath.  This particular one looks like some kind of lizard-type creature.  We didn’t prop it up or move it in any way.

So do you think I should give it a name and make it a pet?  (It will probably be there long after I’m gone).  Namaste’

    1. Thanks, Laz. I was thinking of Homer. What do you think? I might take some of these with me when I leave AZ. Do you still have some of these?
