Agave lechuguilla is one of the principal
indicator plants of the Chihuahuan desert,
 where it grows very freely spreading
vegetatively by stoloniferous shoots,
 which are soft enough to be browsed
 by javelinas. The stiff, erect leaves
  are tipped with surgically sharp needles
  which injure the legs of people or animals
 that brush against them.
