    They were able to evade the stickiness of the drosera. And covered with hairs that might render water proof so they float easily. Escape from nep pitcher. So, disable. Impede their escape

    I've watched caterpillars fall into Nepenthes before and I did not witness them being able to escape. Maybe it depends on the species in question but the waxy zone did a wonderful job at exhausting the beast and having it just slowly slide back down.

    Should be easy. You know what it eats!
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Well, as I mentioned before in other posts. I HATE MOTHS, they are disgusting and only eats dirt. There is no way I am raising it.

    Also, I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this "Terminate. Terminate with extreme prejudice. Pity we didn't discuss this sooner........"

    I should host a sacrificial ceremony!!!!! N-O-T!

    I honestly thought about killing him, but ever since my last sacrifice ( a spider) I felt kinda bad.......
