Are there any animals that digest cactus stickers?

    Deer, rabbits and Javalina are known to eat cactus.  Cochineal insects consume prickly pear.  Although the fruit – and water – inside a cactus is very desirable, the spines and stickers on a cactus’s skin serve to discourage animals from eating it, and thereby protect the plant.  As far as I know, there are no animals that eat the stickers themselves.
