    I saw a video of two big horn sheep having a bit of a fight. I dont know what the horns or skull is made of but you wouldn't want to get in the way of one of them.:yikes:

    You can just take off a stem and allow the stem to dry for a few days and the cut to callous over. Then just bury it an inch into a well drained cactus compost, it should root easily if kept warm on a windowsill. Equally, just a leaf will root and create a new plant, but its a longer process.

    Help - overwatered all my newly potted succulents

    If the wet continues for more than a few days I'd consider bringing them under cover, but for a while they will be okay.
