This plant is not the white-spined version of Opuntia microdasys (called albata or albispina)... it looks like a brown-spined version of that plant. I would like to propose that it be moved to the general species listing.

Bunny Ears (Opuntia microdasys)

What do you think?

It looks like this one could be a possibility.
