Carrion Plant or Toad Plant

This is commonly known as a carrion flower or Stapelia gigantea. You can see that this flower attracts flies because of its horrible smell like rotten meat. When the flower first opens, it is yellow but over time, it turns bright red. You can judge the size of the flower by the size of the flies it attracts.
