Plants can be found in nature in such a wide variety, each one is peculiar in its way. Orchids are among the most majestic and popular flowers, even though they are not easy to look after.
There are more than 30.000 types of orchids, but this own is truly unique. It is called the Monkey Orchid and once you see it you will understand why.

This type of orchid has another name too, Dracul Simia (monkey dragon) and it was first called by this name in 1978 by Carlyle A. Lueren, a botanist.
Even this one peculiar orchid has more than 118 varieties, each of them looking like a different tiny little monkey. Besides its one-of-a-kind looks, the Monkey Orchid has a very pleasant smell too, one that is similar to oranges. They bloom in any seasons and prefer colder temperatures and darker spots.
