Name that flower!

Related to the famous corpse flower, the elephant yam (Amorphophallus paeoniifolius) tends to have a distinct rotting smell. The center of the flower also resembles a chunk of rotting meat. Although some find this plant unappealing, flies and beetles are attracted to its smell! This plant can be found near the Prehistoric Garden.
