Video: 'Devil Head' Orchid Discovered

A new orchid species discovered in Colombia boasts a remarkably demonic feature at its center: a heart that bears an uncanny resemblance to the devil!

The devilishly-shaped gynostemium earned the flower the sinister sounding name Telipogon diabolicus.

Beyond the satanic center, the orchid also sports unique petals that were described by researchers as "distinctly clawed."

Should the flower prove to be truly diabolical, we likely need not worry, since there appear to be only around 30 of the orchids discovered so far.

But if the 'devil orchids' suddenly start sprouting up everywhere, then we may have a problem.
