These "Crested Caterpillar Cactus" are unusual.

The caterpillar cactus (Stenocereus ercua) is a rare, distinctive cactus that grows     
horizontally. The caterpillar cactus is also sometimes called the "creeping devil"
for its habit of creeping across the desert floor. Because the older end of the stem
dies and rots away as new growth occurs,
the cactus does literally migrate over the ground as it matures.
