Can you identify this vine?

We have a vine growing up our backyard cyclone fence. It has 3 deeply grooved lobed leaves that are thick and waxy. The lobes are serrated on the edges

Looks like scunk vine. SIncerely David Rodriguez -Extension Horticulturist Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Bexar County

Thanks for your fast reply. I looked up Skunk vine on the internet and the pictures don't really match the vine we have. I crushed up a leaf. No odor. The leafs are thick enough to put out a juice that is oil to the touch, then sticky, ending up with no feeling at all. The way the leaf split when I crushed it and the juice was pretty much like aloe vera plant. I did wash my hands with soap after handling the vine leaves!

THAT'S IT! Thank you so much, David!
