Arizona Cacti Cactus Carnegiea Gigantea Deserts Large Saguaro Saguaro Cactus Saguaros Size Sizes Sonoran Desert Tall


EDITORS COMMENTS
Stand tall and be prickly, just like me! 🌵 This towering Saguaro Cactus from the Sonoran Desert in Arizona is a true record-breaker. With a height of 78 feet, it's like the skyscraper of the cactus world! 😎 But don't worry if you're not that tall – on average, these majestic plants reach heights of 18 to 30 feet. Did you know that these spiky giants can weigh up to a whopping 80 pounds per foot? 💪 That's one heavy plant! And they take their time growing too – their first arms only appear when they reach around 12 feet or are forty to eighty years old (talk about patience!). Although some saguaros never grow arms at all, they still rock the cactus look. Apart from being desert fashion icons, these amazing cacti also provide cozy homes for many desert birds including Harris Hawks, Gila Woodpeckers, and Red-tailed Hawks. Talk about being hospitable hosts! But wait, there's more! These saguaros are protected from illegal collecting because we want them to keep producing their precious seeds. In fact, during their lifetime they can produce around forty million seeds – talk about spreading green love! Oh yes, and did I mention that sometimes these cool cacti can even have a funky cristate form? It's like winning the genetic lottery for them as this rare variant occurs in only about one in two
