Rat-Eating Plant

RatEatingPlantA newly discovered pitcher plant that feasts on rodents is believed to be the largest meat-eating shrub in the world. The plant has been named Nepenthes attenboroughii, after British wildlife broadcaster David Attenborough.

Botanists first discovered the plant on Mount Victoria in the Philippines. The plant is red and green, and it lures insects and rats into its mouth before dissolving them with acidic enzymes.
