Rafflesia Arnolidii

It is considered to be the largest individual flower on earth. It is also known by the name ‘corpse flower ‘due to the strong odor of decaying flesh that that flower produces. It can be found in rain-forests of Bengkulu, Sumatra Island, Indonesia. Some species of the plant can be found in the jungles of Southeast Asia, including the Philippines. Most of them are threatened or endangered.
