HOAX: "Pink Cactus - Mexico" No such thing. This is a Saguaro Cactus that has been photoshopped. They only grow in Arizona and Sonora Mexico.

THINK about this one: A bright DESERT Rainbow streams its light down behind this huge tree-like Saguaro Cactus that is GLOWING GOLD in the light. Research via DdO:) - - It doesn't rain much in the desert. So what was statistical chance of photographer capturing Nature's glory?! This largest cactus in US is only in S Arizona W Sonora, Mexico; a few in SE Calif. A 10 year old plant might only be 1.5 inches tall- not much rain!

This is the Saguaros at the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. I love this. When I lived in Arizona, at night these Saguaros could look like people at times.
