Susanay,
This is a more likely a photo of Opuntia humifusa instead of O. monacantha.
O. humifusa has the wrinkles in the pads like yours does, and lays down on the ground like yours does. Opuntia monacantha pads are more elongated than yours.
Compare with these:

Would you like your photo moved to the Opuntia humifusa page?

Xeno.
