    Odd Sarracenia tear

    Yesterday I noted a S. flava 'copper top' had a large tear in the pitcher and strings of living tissue were hanging off. I concluded it as just an odd happening. When I woke up this morning my S. leucophylla 'hot pink's largest pitcher also had this same exact effect. It is like a quarter inch wide tear that goes quite aways along one side of the pitcher, at least 12 inches down the pitcher from where it started. What could be causing this? Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Our lights go on outside if anything stepped on the porch and the dogs go NUTS whenever they do, we would have heard something definitely especially since my moms a light sleeper. Plus the tear is on this part of the deck. I don't believe it was wildlife as far as mammals. And if it were a caterpillar I'd be more likely to see holes in random parts not a huge slice.

    it's a longshot, but without seeing it, maybe it could be a slug.

    We don't have any close bodies of water so I don't think so but who knows! Is there anything that feeds on Sarracenia?
