Pitcher plants turn out to be one of the most favorite living toilets in nature-now scientists find that bats like pooing in them as well.

Who the heck else is pooing in these things?!?

I would also like a list of the less favorite living toilets.

/Ignoring you gross farkers need to take this in entirely the wrong direction.

"Scientists recently discovered that small tree shrews on the Southeast Asian island of Borneo sit on the rims of one such pitcher plant Nepenthes lowii and then poop inside. As ignoble as this might seem, this is a win-win situation for both the pitchers and tree shrews."


How is that ignoble? Seems pretty refined for, like, a shrew. Do most other shrews have marble bidets in their master baths?

FTFA:

Not only was it tricky gluing transmitters onto the bats, "one of my students was in the peat swamp one day checking the roosts with her mother of all people, and she calls me all excited saying that she doesn't dare check one of the pitchers because a pit viper is perched beside it," Grafe said. "I told her not to worry and in just over an hour I arrived at the site and removed the viper, not wanting to be responsible for any mishap. I took the viper home as a pet, to the enjoyment of my two young kids."

Wut?

Shouldn't they be called 'Catcher plants' then?

amiright?

On a side note, pitchers and catchers report to camp for spring training in 17-days...

Wait - 90% of the article was about how the bats also live in these things.

They're literally shiatting where they sleep.

Does using a pitcher plant as a toilet constitute as "tool use"?

I've been to gold towns, silver towns, I've even been to turquoise towns. But I have never been to a bat shiat town. Can't wait to see the women!

FTA: Pitcher plants get their name from the long jug-like structures they form from rolled-up leaves.

Interesting fact about bats: My dad was looking at different types of mosquito killers for the back yard when he put in the new pool. He did some research trying to figure out which type of mosquito trap works best. One study was done by the government (the Department of Agriculture if I remember), and the study said that the best type of 'trap' is to simply put up a bat house, wait a few seasons for the bats to find it and move in, and you will have dramatically less mosquitoes in the yard. The study said that one model of mosquito trap might catch 60-80 mosquitoes per hour, another might do 120 or so per hour... but that bats actually eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes per hour! So he bought a bat house, put it up two years ago, and as far as I know no bats have moved in yet.

For bats, the house placement and temperature is key. Not sure if you were really looking for info, but here are two little fact sheets that may have some good information. Just thought I'd share with ya! Some say houses should be 10 feet off the ground, others will say 15-16. Not sure if this has to do with regions. But just fyi. :)

Keeping hots is one thing. Keeping hots when you have two young kids in the house seems terribly irresponsible, no matter how experienced you are with herps. I have to go with [notsureifserious.jpg].

Well of course they do. Bats are demons and pitcher plants are bad people who died and must spend eternity eating*wakes up* good christ! I need to stop huffing paint before breakfast. Where am I?!
