For example, did you know that they provide sustenance to many desert animals? Did you know they can hold water for THREE years?! We didn’t think so!

  • Those cactus have helped Geronimo and his band of warriors cut out and drink for survival.They run 70 miles without water. Apaches are great stability and athletic warriors .Geronimo took a water and held his mouth and ran 70 miles many times,then he can swallow or spit out he is very tough war chief.
