I was looking at my book and i came across the Extraordinary plants page. *One of the categories was "Largest Carnivorous Plant Prey." *This is what it said: "The Nepenthaceae family digest the largest prey in "pitchers" up to 11.81 in (30 cm) long. *Both N. rajah and N. rafflesiana have been known to eat frogs, birds and even rats. *They are found in the rainforest of Asia, particularly in Indonesia." *
There's also a picture of N. ampullaria. *However i doubt this little nep. will ever catch something that big! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
