Thorns and thistles

Genesis 3:17-18
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

This shows that the harmful and defensive features of living things like thorns were added after Man's fall. Thus they were not part of the original creation but add ons resulting from the curse caused by man's fall.
