Artificial Rafflesia, Singapore Zoo

Normally i'm not of a big fan of fibreglass replicas, but in the case of the rafflesia, there really is little choice since it so rarely blooms, exhibiting a live one means many people won't get to see it anyway. It helps that the model is fairly well-made too.

      Vienna Zoo also seems to have one. Just wondering whether they also imitated the smell...;)

      Haha, adding smell would be a little too much detail
