The agave parryi is a compact rosette-forming succulent with broad, short, squared-off gray-green leaves which have prominent teeth and terminal spines. Something that looks painful to the touch.
What's interesting to note, and not noticed until I cropped the photo, was the "indentations" of the leaves and teeth from the lower leaves in the skins of the upper leaves. This was spotted on Coronado Island in California on August 15, 2012.
