    It is a fern type of thing and has long vining pieces that have thorns. I did not realize the picture was so bad... sorry!

    After seeing Douglas' post I have researched the plant I thought your sample was and have found the difference (the obvious one to me anyways) is the vining habit or lack of it. Plumosa fern (aka Asparagus plumosus) can be seen here if you wish for reference: http://www.aspca.org/toxicplants/M01914.htm
