The cholla in this picture is not C. bigelovii - simple comparison to the other pictures in this database entry bears that out. I think there is a good chance it is C. imbricata.
The prickly pear (Opuntia) in the photo is Opuntia engelmannii var lindheimeri linguiformis aka O. lindheimeri linguiformis.

Photo was taken at the Zilker Botanical Gardens in Austin,Tx. I copied the metal tag at the base of the cactus. You are right. After looking at the other photos, it probably isn't Teddy Bear. I will request it be moved and also let the Cactus Club to recheck their tag. Thanks.

We don't have a firm ID, so I've moved it to the Cylindropuntia generic page.
