A monstrous forms of a common cactuses.

A monstrous form occurs when a virus, or a cancer (no one knows, heck it could be cosmic rays) alters the DNA and growth symmetry of a cactus. So, a cactus that was formerly bilaterally symmetrical reverts to an ancestral radial symmetry. The cactus will grow in the monstrous form for a few years, and will sometimes "repair" itself and go back to growing in the normal fashion. 

A cristata form can grow as for years and than can become a monstrous form as it shown on photo 2 above.
