Opuntia zebrina f. reticulata

Also known as the Cobra Cactus, the Opuntia zebrina f. reticulata is an Opuntia quite unlike you’ve ever seen. Its unusual and intriguing markings criss cross throughout the plant, creating a distinctive snakeskin-like pattern. These markings are the result of scarring due to each pad’s expanding growth. Its tall, irregular pads feel as if they have slithered up from the soil, further adding to it’s snake-like characteristics.
