Odd Plant?

Does anyone know the name of this plant? I found this one on the edge of the road today.
I haven't seen one since I was a kid and don't remember what they are called.
They have a flower and leaf pattern like a mimosa, but are very small, no more than a foot high, and have small thorns.
The coolest thing is when you touch them, the leaves close.

And a .gif showing the leaves close
