    Chewing on cacti seems impossible, but not for camels! What are your thoughts on their ability to handle spiky snacks?

    My camels! You can watch more of Baby and Nessie on my channel. They sure love their cactus. And no they are not hungry or thirsty. They go for cactus over any other food and they like it this way.

    Wow so beautiful.

  • Avi Blaszkowsky 9 months ago

    I don’t know if it’s a lobivia but it could very well be one because there are pups coming off of the top of the cactus. Echinocereus tend to pup at the bottom of the plant.
