"Alien" Cactus found near Roswell

ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) - Little green men are no strangers to Roswell, but now one New Mexico botanist says a little green plant has an out-of-this world connection to New Mexico.

David Salman said he was on a seed hunting trip near Roswell when he noticed a faint glow coming from what appeared to be a meteor crater.
He said it turned out the light was coming from a small patch of carnivorous cacti.
Salman said he found a cactus that eats bugs, glows and probably came to earth on a meteor.
He says he scooped up some samples to see if someone could identify them, so far no one has been able to. 


  1. Oh, that is creepy!! Very cool, thanks for sharing!


  2. Weird - That isn't like any cactus I've seen!

  3. Now THIS is a plant that may actually say, "Feed Me!" and mean it!

    we already have the Sundew, the Pitcher Plant, the Venus Flytrap, and about 630 other species of carnivorous plants. .and now this one! One more reason to watch where you step! lol
