    Nepenthes fluid is very nasty. Particulary as N. truncata was to me. I got some on my cheek a while ago while "sloshing" some prey around to drown, then and a little drop shot up and landed on my cheek...I thought nothing of it and continued to swirl the pitcher....minutes later my cheek was itchy and burning...next thing I know I had a red spot. I'd hate to get that in your eyes if it did that to my cheek! If N. truncata did that think of what N. rajah would do!

    Hmm....maybe we could sell it as face wash? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] "Works in minutes to clear up that dirty face!"

    I drank fluids from a N. ampullaria pitcher before, but the pitcher was unopened. As you can see, I am still alive, I think...

    That's an UN-opened pitcher with no acidic activity yet. It didn't really hurt me just left an irritation like I stated earlier. The skin on your face is quite sensitive so it didn't surprize me. Went away within a few hours tho. I would highly suggest don't get it in your eye tho. I measured the pH of some digestive juices and ym meter was reading around 3-4 pH. So it looks pretty nasty to me.
