Stenocereus eruca is in the family Cactaceae. Commonly known as creeping devil cactus, it is native to the deserts of Baja California. This species exhibits a peculiar growth habit, growing sideways along the sand instead of columnar like other cacti. The creeping devil cactus produces roots on the side touching the ground as the tip of the cactus continues to grow. Over time, this cactus produces the effect of walking along the desert sand.
