Just when you thought it was safe, etc… here’s more from last week’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival. I’ve saved the best until (possibly) last: now feast your eyes (ho ho!) upon these stunning carnivorous plants.
Apparently the larger ones eat not just insects, but small vertebrates, too. Eeeeek!
I don’t know about you, but there seems something particularly horrific about the idea of a plant eating a mouse or frog. Like a bird-eating spider eating, well, a bird. Kind of goes against the natural order of things (except it doesn’t, of course – but let’s leave that for later).Ì
