    Wild Alaskan Carnivores

    Alaskan sphagnum bog

    Great Sundew (drosera anglica)


    Round-Leaf Sundew (drosera rotundifolia)

    Bladderwort (utricularia minor?)


    We happened to be there right at the start of rough-skinned newt breeding season. Here's the pond



    This is just a cool fungus formation


    I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but we have a plethora of droseras and I thought I would just take some pictures as they came out of dormancy. They were all still very small but will be larger and more magnificent in a month or two. On this isolated island where these bogs exist, a multi-million dollar road was just built last year for basically no reason. It would be a shame for these wonderful wetlands to disappear.

    Thanks for the comments guys, there will definitely be some more pictures in a few weeks or so. There is so much more than what you see here.

    BTW, if anyone absolutely needs Extreme temperate D. rotundifolia, I have an almost infinite supply, seeds, plants whatever. D. anglica's are less common and I wouldn't want to disperse any before my captive stock starts reproducing.

    These endure some pretty harsh conditions, though, and I don't know how they would grow in a milder climate.
