This prehistoric-looking freak of a flower is blooming at the Huntington this weekend. Formally known as amorphophallus titanum ("giant misshapen penis") it more commonly goes by corpse flower because it smells like a decomposing mammal.

Their tumblr has more photos of this truly impressive yet apparently vile-smelling bloom, including some cool time lapse gifs.

I will not be flocking to see it but will respectfully salute its nastiness from afar.
