This is yet another "carrion flower" that attracts flies.  It literally smells like decomposing meat.  But, odor aside, isn't that an interesting flower?  It's huge AND it's furry!  I thought only animals had fur!

First thing I thought of when I saw this flower was that it looked like a "starfish". It is very unique. A stinky flower with fur! Who would have thought... LOL

Yeah, I hear ya! I, too, thought "starfish" when I saw the first flower. Aren't they supposed to be pretty, fragrant, and delicate little things??? I suppose Mother Nature has a sense of humor, huh? C'mon, look at the ostrich; a long-legged, gangly bird that can't fly. If that's not a sense of humor, I don't know what is...!
