From the New York Times article post: Hardwicke's woolly bat, flying into a pitcher plant, Nepenthes hemsleyana, where it roosts. The plant attracts the bats to feed on their guano. It does not eat the bats. Photo credit: Ch'ien C.

BAGSC member Cynthia Jackson forwarded a link to a New York Times article, Plants that are Predators, posted online September 14, 2015.

The article highlights numerous carnivorous plants, including the Nepenthe pictured here.

During the “Weird, Wild & Wonderful” Symposium, Mieko Ishikawa gave a workshop on painting Nepenthes, and also discussed them in her lunchtime keynote about painting the plants of Borneo. She showed photographs of one Nepenthe that serves as a toilet for a rodent.

More stories and photos about the “Weird, Wild & Wonderful” Symposium will be posted soon.

Thank you Cynthia for the link!
