Dr. Joan Bushwell's Chimpanzee Refuge

This fearsome beast is a Puya raimondii, a member (har) of the pineapple family. The specimen was photographed by an unknown (to me) botanist in the high Andes of Peru.

Hat tip to my wandering co-blogger, Kevin “Just Me, My Banjo, and My Bonobos” Beck, for sending this along.
