I have a stag horn fern, it looks different than this http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/685...
Ferns in this group are known as staghorn or elkhorn ferns due to their uniquely-shaped fronds so says Wikipedia. Lol

@dandoucette ...So have I, but I took this photo in the botanic garden and the sign said Elkhorn! Don't know if it is right!

Interesting, I've never heard this called Elkhorn Fern. I've always heard this as Staghorn Fern.
