    Nepenthes on Animal Planet

    Hey All,

    Don't know if anyone else caught it, but there was a Nepenthes featured on Animal Planet last night of all places. The show was talking about life in the jungle, and they showed a rather large Nepenthes from Borneo catching bugs and such. The documentary also had a feature about the crab spider and how they fish their prey out of a Nepenthes pitcher. It was quite cool...

    Later,
    Will
