Saguaro Cactus
pronounced: SA-WA-row


Carnegiea gigantea

tree-sized cactus species.
Harming a saguaro in any manner, including cactus plugging, is illegal by state law in Arizona.


Desert: native to the Sonoran Desert in the U.S. state of Arizona, the Mexican state of Sonora
Height: 13 meters (45 ft) tall
Flowers: Saguaro blossom- night blooming flowers appear April through May
Fruit: ruby-colored fruit, used for many food making possibilities including wine and jelly.
Elevation: grow from sea level to about 4000 feet


Saguaro and bad company 2
these poor cactus are depicted in BC2 as puny people size plants down in the Atacama desert, a desert that has virtual no plant life, definitely NO SAGUAROS .
so its an unhappy situation.
jerks...
i might have to go plug their cactus!! if you know what i mean Rolling Eyes


i said it before and i will say it again;
just because it is a desert doesn't mean a Saguaro has to be there
