    But at least the pitcher plant kills you before it digests you, un-Saarlac like.

    A smart bird would have pecked through the side of the plant to get the nectar.

    I point to Nepenthe and I point to La Cage aux Folles.  That’s all.

    … Is the animal preserved somehow such as – not rotting ? would the fluids be antibacterial as well ?

    Best crime scene photo ever.

    Also, I sent this to Maggie over the weekend and didn’t get credit.  And I work for BB.  So don’t complain to me about how your stories don’t get picked up.

    What’s funny is that it can’t digest feathers.* So it’ll eventually choke and die.

    Tropical pitcher plants are pretty awesome in the literal sense of the word.  Any plant that can consume an animal gets my vote for most evolutionarily bad a##

    I’ve seen this plant in Sarawak (Borneo Island) Malaysia. U know i am wonder how it digests the bird? How they get rid of the feather?

    OK, does no one else see what I see? Or am I just the least mature person here and no one else is willing to say it?
