Plants like that are just wrong.

not to worry, just haul up a BRINE truck and douse it with nice, cold CORROSIVE 'seawater'….problem solved!

The American Southwest has similiar type plants though without the big stem.

The points have some type of neuro-toxin so if a small animal gets poked by one they tend to stop moving and thus the plant feeds it self.

Was out hiking one day and my left arm did get poked by one and the area around where I got poked went numb.

What plants are those? I've lived in the Southwest all my life and spent a fair amount of time out in the wild and have never run into any plant that has the effect that you describe.

I almost expect a song from this.
