The Bunny Ear Cactus, one of many Prickly Pear species, is fortunate to not be listed as endangered. It is native to Mexico, and can also be found in the wild in Arizona.

Did you know?

Roughly one-third of all cacti are considered endangered. The largest threat to cacti is removal from the native environment; many are highly desired resulting in illegal trade.

Cacti provide shelter, food and water for many desert animals. The prickly spines protect them from predators.
