Nepenthes bicalacarata as a house for ants? Yup. N. lowii acting as a toilet for tree shrews? Oh, you betcha. 🤢

It’s always great to see new carnivorous plant videos, especially when they cover some of our favorite Nepenthes species and how they’ve coevolved, or mutualistically align with other organisms. SciShow pulled together this fun and educational video covering how a few tropical pitcher plants have developed a pallet for the unpalatable. Don’t grab a box of popcorn, sit back, and try not to gag.
