Amazing Carrion Plants

Carrion is a lovely word used for rotting or decomposing flesh, and so carrion flowers tend to smell like a pile of rotten flesh. This smell is not used to ward off potential predators, but rather to attract insects.

Totally Awesome! Like a giant Grandmother of the Venus Fly Trap. Wonder if it will eat mother in laws.
