The Aquamarine Fukushima aquarium Japan recently opened up an exhibit showing the rare Dracula simia flower, known as the Monkey Orchid. If you look closely, the flower pedals form the face of a primate.

The Dracula simia Monkey Orchids (there’s another type of Monkey Orchid called Orchis simia that looks like a monkey’s body) grow in Colombia and Ecuador. Some say they smell like a ripe orange.
The exhibit will go until Jan. 12, according to reports. The Aquamarine Fukushima aquarium is located in Iwaki.
