The largest known carnivorous pitcher plant has been discovered in the Philippines. It’s able to devour whole rats and dissolve them with acid-like enzymes:
Mr McPherson, of Poole Dorset, said: “The plant produces spectacular traps which catch not only insects, but also rodents. It is remarkable that it remained undiscovered until the 21st century.”
The plant is named Nepenthes attenboroughii after the famous wildlife broadcaster Sir David Attenborough.
