Normally in the natural world it is the case that plants are eaten by birds and animals. However, some plants have had enough of this, evolving so that they are able to eat members of the animal kingdom. These carnivorous plants usually prey on insects, grubs, and the occasional tiny lizard. One pitcher plant in a Somerset has gone further – this monstrous plant has eaten a blue tit. Apparently the bird was lured into the pitcher plant's blasphemous maw as it tried to gobble up some insects who were caught in there. But once the blue tit fell in, it was stuck in place and doomed.

This is apparently only the second time in recorded history that a carnivorous plant has eaten a bird.
