Acid Plant

leave a comment »

We had a harrowing experience when we kept getting brushed against these plants while riding mules out of the canyon. Apparently no one told them how dangerous these plants are.

Our guide tore a leaf off this plant to show us the white sap inside and told us that it is extremely acidic and told us a story of a child who was bush-wacking and went blind as a result of getting this sap in his eyes.
