just cause it eats crap doesnt mean it doesnt eat insects too ;P
Thanks for sharing the article. Very interesting read.
Maybe I should grow the rajah instead of having a catbox...
Now this is also cool! 3 vids on Nepenthes rajah and N. macrophylla....with tree shrews
<Heli> How are you guys losing your hamatas?
<Brokken> Heli: The hamburglar.
it does take the "Vicious Meat-Eating Mystique" away from some of these plants,
however we know that Sundew and Venus Fly Traps aren't eating poop!
Unless, that is the real reason they are catching and killing insects!
To extract the poop out of them!
Now that IS Vicious!
It is interesting that some of the Nepenthes are referred to as "toilet bowl" style already.
Regardless, it shows the wonderful adaptations in nature.
I wonder if there will be a new classification of CP's, meat eaters... and *! eaters!
Now I am going to think twice the next time I hear my friend's wife tell me
"he is down stairs feeding his plants!"
It just won't be the same anymore!
By the way, fascinating article, and makes complete sense!
Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
lol hes feeding the plants, he might be a minute...hes had a lot of fiber in his diet lately, probably not the best idea to go down there right now xD
poo eaters or not, they are beautiful.
maybe its their way of trying to get Mike Rowe out there for a dirty jobs episodes....
There are those who clean poo for a living....and then those who eat it.
