In a Spiny Desert Arboretum, Madagascar

This was a fun day, it was extremely hot as we followed the guide who was trying to explain to us everything. Since we were such a large group it was hard for everyone to hear everything, so I went around taking pictures avoiding the pointy parts of the plants.

Some of the plants (the ones that kid of look like green beans sticking up) are poisionous. If you got its sap in your eye you can go blind. The antidote is basically right next to it in this arboretum.
