This Saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea) was mutilated last year by some idiot with a saw or a sword. You can see the remains of the top on the lower right. We thought it was a goner, but it has since grown at least 4 (some very small in the back) arms. If you ever see some moron throwing rocks or otherwise damaging desert plants, take a photo with your cell phone and turn him in.
