A team of botanists on an expedition in the Philippines has discovered a carnivorous plant that is so large, it can devour large insects and rats whole.
The pitcher plant, believed to be the biggest meat-eating shrub in existence, was found high atop Mount Victoria by two experts, Alastair Robinson and Stewart McPherson. They were inspired to look for it after hearing tales of the monstrous plant from two Christian missionaries who climbed the mountain in 2000.
