Prickly Situation

I found these prickly seed pods hanging along side the trail in Mission Trails Park. I think they come from the Dodder vine, a parasitic vine that is also called witch's hair but I'm not at all sure. Most plant books key on flowers, not by seed pods so after searching for a bit, I figured I'd toss it out there and see if the audience might be able to figure it out.

we found a prickly pod along Sweetwater River. It had 4 chambers and it was a prickly, dried so we do not know what it looked like green.
