A carnivorous plant (Nepenthes truncata) at the Botanical Garden in Lyon, France, recently snacked on a mouse. The partially digested remains of the mammal were discovered after visitors to the gardens complained of the smell (Iâ€™m sure it was lovely). The pitcher plant is native to an island in the Philippines, and this is the first recorded capturing of a mammal by any carnivorous plant in captivity. Sadly, had the mouse lived, he surely would have been mocked by all of his friends for nearly being eaten by a plant.
