These lovely "Crested Barrel Cactus" are unusual and their thorns are curved about   
45 degrees unlike the saguaro which has straight thorns. The thorns are redish in color,
not yellow or white like a saguaro. If they get ahold of you, the thorn is quit strong and
you will definitely know it. The good thing is they don't have a reverse barb near the tip.
When barrel cactus flower, they usually have flowers, arranged like a ring around the
top and quite often the whole top of the cactus may be flowered.
These flowers can be orange, redish or yellow in color.
