It's the plant the peat swamp deserves.

That's a neat discovery; thanks for posting it, subby.

So what are bats doing roosting roost in these lethal pitchers?

Is the roosting roost like the Humpty-Hump or more like the Pooty-Poot Putin?

That was a pretty cool read.

There actually is a bat plant. It's supposed to have a very beautiful flower.

Learned something new today. Good find, subby.

This sounds like a whole new feature for the franchise - but who to cast as BatPlant, Batman's secret plant friend?

I'd swear I've heard of this before. The plants get what they want, bat guano, and the bat gets a little hidey hole.

Some of the tropical pitcher plants are big enough to digest rodents. Just another bit of creepiness from mother nature.

A similar carnivorous pitcher plant is located in the swampland in East Texas. Sadly, they are not big enough to digest rodents of even the most usual size.

Fun fact: Bats don't have a cloaca (because they're mammals)

But enough about Barbara Cargill and Governor Perry...

Nice find subby! Something cool to share with my kids. Fark you for the earbug.

Actually, monotremes have cloacae.
