Cotyledon Tomentosa is also known as “Bear’s Paw.” Most notable features of this succulent are the beautifully thick, but fuzzy leaves each has around 3 to 10 (claw-shaped) ends that come out of the leaves. An interesting fact about the Bear Paw is that when the plant is doing well, the leaf tips change color into a deep red.
When watering the Cotyledon tomentosa (or Bear’s Paw) be careful it is a plant that is sensitive to over-watering. It is a plant that needs to be thoroughly drenched in water and dried before watering again.
