A few weeks ago, I lost my mind on eBay and bought quite a few cacti. I have put a personal ban on myself for a while from purchasing more because I could see it quickly going down hill into a psychologically disturbed botanic mania. Plus eBay is evil!!! Something new and cool is always on there, and it's so easy to get absorbed into the frenzy. Fortunately, I caught myself before any damage was done.
One of the plants I bought was being sold as a Cereus sp., but I have my serious doubts about that. The reason I bought it was because OH MY GOD THE SPINES ARE RIDICULOUSLY LONG! The trunk is about 7" tall, and the longest spines are nearly 4" long!!

I've never seen anything like this one, and I have no idea what cactus it is. If someone out there knows what this is, PLEASE TELL ME! Until I get a proper plant ID, I will call it Rabid Baby Killer because babies are cute and so is this little guy. :)
