8 Lava Cactus at Sullivan Bay on Santiago Island in Galápagos, EC

Another early pioneer settling among the rocks at Sullivan Bay is lava cactus. This species brachycereus nesioticus is unique to the Galápagos Islands. The spiny, cylindrical spears display white or yellow flowers during the day. The hearty plant can grow as tall as two feet yet few reach that height at the lava fields on the east coast of Santiago Island.
