It's located at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and it's named "Lois"......

Cajun: Unable to view because it requires Shim. Can you edit and post it as an Img and not URL? Thanks. R

It's a live webcam, so I have no control over it - you can go to their home page, or their blog, which is listed on the quoted page......

I think these should help:

HMNS Blog
HMNS Flickr Page
HMNS vimeo Page


All are Lois-specific locations from the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Side note: I've seen a corpse flower blossom; several years ago at the National Arboretum. Be very, very thankful they don't have smell-a-vision for the internets.
