Time Lapse of the Corpse Flower Blooming at Como

Ewwwwwww...that corpse flower reeks!

The endangered Sumatran flower, nicknamed "Bob, too," blooms for about 24 hours and during that time, it smells like rotting flesh.  The flower's fragrance attracts carrion eating insects to help pollinate it.

The girls!

A perfect ending to a great day!
