double lip catasetum cristatum, a totally wicked look

this bud was the first on the spike but was the slowest and the most under developed. initially i thought it would be aborted by the plant but i continue to grow.
the only funny thing i noted about this bud other than the size is the non resupinate position which is awkward for a cristatum. when it blasted open this morning, was surprised to see how it looks like. totally wicked look!!

side view of the flower, can see both the labellum on top and bottom

front view, looks like a creature with jaw that is full with large fangs opening its mouth

for those who are not familar with how a normal cristatum looks like, here it is
