Gibbaeum gibbosum (part 2 of 2)

The first picture -taken in August- shows that not only human beings like these plants.  After winter rainfall, they are a juicy bite for hungry animals (in this case probably a tortoise).
The next four pictures were taken in October and November, when progressing heat and drought start discolouring the plants.
After summer the plants may look quite miserable (as shown in the last picture, taken in April).
