    LYON, France -- Visitors to the Botanical Gardens in Lyon, France, should watch their fingers after a carnivorous plant there ate a mouse.

    Botanists discovered a partially digested mouse inside the plant on Friday after several people complained of a horrible smell.

    The carnivorous plant, native to the Philippines, is the first to actually prove that plants can indeed eat small mammals.

    Previously, insects were the only things that were known to be in a carnivorous plant's diet.

    Why are they stupid? A mouse could have easily gotten caught in the trap because of the sugary sweet nectar that the pitchers produce and the mouse couldve fallen in while trying to find the source.

    The media likes to blow things out of porportion. No one would read if they knew catching small animals is a natural deal in the wild.

    Yeah, but thats is what leads to all the misconception in the world today. thats is why there is and should be more media watch dogs. The media is a good way to spread information. I just needs to be accurate information!

    I hardly trust any news media on reporting science related stories. They are in it for the money not scientific accuracy.

    The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it&#33 but 'That's funny ...'
