Notes: It forms a spreading rosette of broad, pale green leaves that are heavily armed with bizarre, very large white spines along the margins. The tall inflorescence is unbranched. Because of its limited distribution, it is considered threatened in habitat. Agave megalodonta is known locally as maguey espumoso and used for the production of mezcal. In cultivation it will adapt easily to a wide range of conditions in warm temperate and dry tropical climates.
