Encephalartos altensteinii - Prickly Cycad

Encephalartos altensteinii - Prickly Cycad (Encephalartos altensteinii - Prickly Cycad)

One of the many unusual Cycads at the San Diego Zoo...I may have mentioned this before but the San Diego Zoo has the second largest Cycad collection in North America. I believe Fairchild tropical Garden in Miami, Florida has the largest.

Yes, they do have an incredible shape...and an incredibly hefty price. These plants can sell for thousands of dollars, especially when large.
