Flowers that Look Like Animals

Monkey Face Orchid (Dracula Simia)

Most of us have seen this one going around online. There is no mistaking these Curious George look-alikes.

Naked Man Orchids (Orchis Italica)

These funny looking little man orchids sport silly hats and, well… anatomically similar anatomy as well.

Swaddled Babies (Angula Uniflora)

These sweet little baby look-a-likes are all swaddled up in their cradles.

Happy Alien (Calceolaria Uniflora)

These little flowers are out of this world. Their long faces and cute little dishes will have you looking to the trees, not the sky for an alien invasion.

Darth Vader (Aristolochia Salvadorensis)

You don’t have to join the dark side to see the uncanny resemblance to Darth Vader with this bloom.

Parrot Flower (Impatiens Psittacina)

These flowers resemble parrots in flight.

Fly Orchid (Ophrys Insectifera)

These orchids simulate flies, mother nature sure got clever with this one.

Hookers Lips (Psychotria Elata)

The kissable shape of this flower is brief. It only stays in this state for a short time before revealing its blooming flower.

Dragon’s Mouth Orchid (Arethusa Bulbosa)

Unfortunately, there are a lot of fake photos on the internet of this one. While it really doesn’t resemble a dragon’s face, one can certainly imagine it would resemble a dragon’s tongue, if dragons were real.

Dancing Lady Orchid (Oncidium Sphacelatum)

These lovely ladies resemble a beautiful flamenco dancer, sans maracas. Bonus, they grow beautifully in our South Florida climate.
