Default Rat-Eating Plant Discovered

Rat-eating plant discovered in Cape York
Quote:
A rare new species of plant that eats small rats has been discovered at the tip of Cape York.

Pitcher plants, otherwise known as flesh-eating plants, grow throughout Cape York but now a new, larger species that grows like a vine has been discovered.

The new species has been called "Tenax".

James Cook University ecologist Charles Clarke and a colleague found the new species at a swamp near the Jardine River, but exactly where is a secret.

"They are quite vulnerable," he said.

"They are only found in a few small areas and if we broadcast the location then there are people out there who would take advantage of that.

"There's a lot of interest in pitcher plants from Australia, even from people outside of Australia.

"And while people often associate these things with New Guinea or Borneo or Sumatra, the fact that there's more species here is actually very exciting."

Gee, I wonder how something like that could evolve. It's far to complex to happen by chance.

Its amazing that a plant can do this. I've always been in awe that there are plants that can eat flies but now rats!?

It seems anything is likely.

I see no evidence that such a plant ate a rat from that pic or article. If a plant did indeed devour a rat, there would have to be physical evidence in place or a picture of the consumption process to confirm such a feat

And there are STILL people deluded enough to think it's all just an accident.
