Did you catch a whiff of this?
The fascinating corpse flower, named that way because it literally smells like rotting flesh, was on display at Cal State Fullerton Monday and Tuesday.
The pollination period, which is when the interesting blossom emits the ghastly odor, lasts only from 24 to 28 hours – and attracts crowds eager to see what the stench smells like for themselves.
The reason for the smell is also for attracting another crowd -- bugs, beetles and other insects -- to begin the pollination process.
