      Victoria Regia  é um tipo de lily encontrada nas shallow waters do Amazon River.

      Seu name foi colocado em honor à Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, já que a plant foi discovered by British explorer Robert Schomburgk in 1836.

      It is the largest water lily in the world.

      Uma leaf desta plant chega a medir 3 m de diameter.

      It is so strong que uma small child pode sit comfortably sobre a leaf, pois cada uma pode hold up to 45 kg.
