Fan Shaped Euphorbia

Poisonous Succulent Plant

and this is another interesting kind of cactus because of its form looking like a puzzle or human brain , dark green...??

Drought Smart Plants reply: Hi Ahmed, this is a really cool looking plant - exactly as you say, a green brain! Their weird shape and texture has many people fascinated by these plants.

Unfortunately, they're poisonous, especially the white milky sap, which can cause blindness if it's splashed or otherwise gets into the eyes as well as contact dermatitis. This is of particular concern around children.

Play safe!
