prickly pear

One type of cactus we saw a lot of in the desert was the Prickly Pear. There were smaller ones with a darker green color and shorter, denser spines and also pretty purple ones.
Some of them had curiously oblong triangular shaped pads, instead of round.
I didn't see many of these but they looked very alien.
