It amazes me that they can eat that stuff and come out unscathed! I lived in AZ and I know how evil it is.
They really are incorrigible with that stuff. Too cute though.
Reminds me of "Tiger" chowing down on the Musk Thistle in his pasture. I tried it once...it's sweet but about as prickly as the cholla. *lol*
I'd not noticed the white stripe at the top of Alan's front legs before. A handsome one that guy!
They just love their jalapeno (a.k.a. cholla) cactus with a drenching of Tobasco sauce. Not for antelopes or cows, it's a very special dish for those with cast iron bellies!
I don't know how anything can eat that stuff.
