 Has anyone seen this behavior before?

So I was on YouTube today and I saw a vid of a desert spiny. What’s strange is, he was eating plants, more specifically Cordia flowers. This is pretty neat for me, I thought they were entirely carnivorous.

Here’s the link:

Wow. Never knew that. I just grabbed my Stebbins field guide to see what it says, and lo and behold... they occasionally eat "buds, flowers, berries, and leaves." Who’d a thought? Thanks for bringing it.
