This teddy-bear cholla cactus is located in the Cholla Cactus Garden at JTNP. A word of advice: do not attempt to pet this teddy-bear. The stem-joints can easily detach and hitch a ride due to the minuscule barbs on the spines, giving it the nickname "jumping cholla". Once they've latched on, the spines are very painful to remove. This is an artistic rendition I made as a custom order.
