good point endparenthesis
, but again, the mamal in question...tree shrew , monkey, or whatever don't geta t the inecsts from the peristome, they would chew thru the base of the pither or shred it entirely. I imagine most monkeys have some huuge caluses from all the tree swinging, and would not even feel the peristome of edwardsiana, much less be disuaded by it. That bieng said, you could be right.
Another good point Gus. So if the prey is the reatively the same for all pitchers regarless of peristome type or shape, perhaps they developed differently for some other reason... hmmmmm Anyone know what edwardsiana eats?
