    Mouse tale

    I got a bit verbose here, so my apologies.

    Anyway, about a week ago I noticed this N.lowii had a damaged lid. I thought maybe I had broken it while watering or moving plants around. (All photos were taken today.)



    Yesterday I noticed similar damage on a young Nepenthes ephippiata up on a shelf, so I then took a look at a larger plant and found this:





    I suspected a critter was at work, so last night I set a trap near the larger N. ephippiata and caught a mouse.

    After taking the above photos and disposing of the mouse, I peeked in the pitcher. At least the plant received some food in exchange for the lid damage!




    Guess this qualifies as a "mouse toilet".
    (Mice seldom act alone, so I'll be setting more traps...)
    Cheers,
    Mac (kpg)

    Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.
