It has Many twisting arms that have spines along them

It's a beautiful.....Whatever it is

Drought Smart Plants reply: it is indeed! This resembles some kind of Opuntia, but I really don't have any idea exactly what kind. Cacti are not my strong suit, so hopefully someone else will recognize this distinctive plant.

Cow's Horn-euphorbia grandicornis
by: Lupe

Does this euphorbia have small yellow flowers where the thorns are? I don't remember if this plant had the blooms or one similar to it.

I love this website, my passion are cacti, euphorbia and succulents. Learn something everyday.

Definitely a Euphorbia, I just don't know which one. So not a true cactus. I really love the amazing variety of the Euphorbia genus.

I'm not sure, I am going to be moving them around today so I will get some different pics that show the twisting of it and the spines.

I've been looking for more information about this for you and found a plant that might be the same - it's hard to tell from your picture if it has these long spines, but you may be able to tell if it's the same.
