Carnivorous Plant Digests a Bird
The BBC reports that a carnivorous plant has killed a blue tit at a garden nursery in Somerset, UK. (5 August 2011)
"The pitcher plant is a genus of Nepenthes from South East Asia which attracts and traps insects in a pool of liquid which it then digests."
Other common victims are rats, mice, frogs and lizards.
