In this photo, you are looking at two Tobalá (a. Potatorum) that are growing no more than 2 meters away from each other.  People often ask what physical characteristics to look for when identifying agave species. Look at the exaggerated thorn growth and different thorn color of the lower penca (leaf).
As you can see in this comparison, two plants of the same species growing in the exact same location can exhibit natural physical diversity. There sometimes are not hard & fast rules in nature. As you can see, just like people, these pants are incredibly diverse. #agave #maguey #tobalá #mezcaloax #nature #diversity
