The Cat's Claw Acacia grows along desert streams and washes and can grow to up to 20 feet tall. The name is derived from the long curved thorns on the plant. Bees are attracted to the flagrant yellow flowers found on the plant and make a popular type of honey. Birds can also be seen nesting in the upper branches.
