She's A ManEater :o)

If you recall about a month ago, we went on a guided hike at a local Nature Conservancy location called Swamp Angel. One of the hikers was Botanist Scott, and we have started following him at Through Handlens and Binoculars, and based on an e-mail from him, I have started following him over at GetYourBotanyOn. We were fascinated by the carnivorous plants, and Scott has posted a couple of links to one found in Borneo that can/has digest rodents on the GetYourBotanyOn site. The PopSci site especially has a cool video of one of the pitcher tubes growing.

After watching the video of the new pitcher plant, I found the one below of a Venus Fly Trap plant. Spoiler Alert - it shows insects getting consumed :o)

Anyway, as I was watching the video, the maneater song started going through my head, so if it does for you, below is a video :o)


  1. Yeah, these are so freaky and cool.

  2. Ken, I'll send Stan over to take a look at this.

  3. This was so cool. I love this. I teach art and I always encourage my students to learn from science. This is one of the reason. Science offers so many opportunities to take risks and to advance.

  4. I adore Hall and Oates, and this is one of my favorite songs. It definitely works with this video. LOL!


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
