Flower that looks like a monkey or a vampire! You think this is Photoshopped? Think again.

The rare monkey orchid or Dracula orchid is found only in some parts of Ecuador and Peru. This unique kind of flower perfectly mimics a monkey face. The monkey orchid, Orchis simia is a greyish pink to reddish species of the Orchis genus. It gets its common name from its lobed lip which mimics the general shape of a monkey’s body.
