    were can these plants be found?

    I've heard of CP's that eat mice or rats.(usually pitchers) Is there a place that sells them?

    1. The obly documented CP's that can do that are large species of Nepenthes (tropical Pitcher plants) Species such a rajah, and truncata.

    2. They don't really eat them in the wild, only rajah has be document to naturally catch a rodent, without human intervention.

    3. If you did find a reasonably sized one, i don't see why'd you do it as the smell of rotting flesh would be horrible.

    4. We can't mention other vendors, store, or online seller so....yeah.

    thanx carnivoure12. I did once hear of a fly trap that occasionally eats rodents(with the help of people). I'll look up those Nepenthes.

    The mammal-eating carnivorous plant thing is a bit of a myth. If you're looking for nice and big, impressive plants though, that's a different question.

    Stuff like Drosera filiformis, Drosera dichotoma 'Giant', Sarracenia leucophylla "titan", Darlingtonia, P. x 'Titan', etc etc all grow fairly large. None of them would eat a rat, but they'd sure put a dent in an ant colony or a wasp nest.
