As I was unable to play Hamlet(that's already getting looked at, don't worry) I loaded up an old Shipwrecked save.
It was the Dry season when I started, but as soon as it was some of my Coffee plants (all in the area) withered. When the Crocodogs made themselves known, I went to my Cactus field to deal with them.
To my surprise, the cactus did not attack the hounds.
They wouldn't even attack me. Perhaps the strangest thing was I was able to "pick" them. And get the spikes that way?
It was all very weird. After a while they withered and I fertilized them with ash and they turned back to normal.
Steps to Reproduce
Reloaded an old save and it was like this.
