Ive had this thing along time and all of a sudden it started growing this cluster of thorns out of it. I was wondering if someone could tell me if its a pup. Thanks

Update, in about a months time its grown three more pups. I think it heard me talking that I was going to get rid of it so it started growing pups to make it more interesting. Lol

I have the same mammillaria! I still don't know what it is. It was just labeled "owls eye" cactus.
