This pitcher plant (Nepenthes rafflesiana elongata) has evolved a unique relationship with the small wooly bat. Instead of consuming insects like the chamber of most of its close relatives, this plant’s chamber provides the bat with a perfect place to roost during the day. The guano left behind by the bat provides the plant with all the nourishment it needs.
More commonly known as Miss North’s Pitcher Plant the Nepenthes Northiana is a sedentary plant. What makes this plant so awesome? It’s big enough to eat rats. Yup, it doesn’t waste its time with insects, it eats rodents. #AWESOME
