Your Weekly Attenborough: Nepenthes attenboroughii

Oh, to be a pitcher plant. Unlike most of the animal kingdom, who run around chasing money, antelopes, Twitter mentions and whatnot, pitcher plants just sit there and let it all come to them. It’s like being inside one of those money booth things with dollar bills flying around and just letting them stick to your face.

It’s not a lifestyle for everyone, of course, but if these guys can make it work, there’s hope for the rest of us. I mean, they live on a freaking mountain for Chrissakes.
