“Killer” plant eats bird


Pitcher plant eats great tit (bird)

Carnivorous plants like the pitcher plant above and venus fly traps live in soil with a lack of nitrates which are needed to make protein.  Theyobtain nitrates by trapping small insects and and slowly digesting them. This pitcher plant trapped a bird which may have fell in as it tried to get an insect floating in the pitcher plants digestive juices. The bird will slowly be digested by the enzymes in the digestive juice.

Giant Panda’s are part of the bear family ( Brown Bear, Polar Bear etc) and even though they now mostly herbivores, their digestive systems are adapted to digest meat unlike other large herbivores  ( eg. Elephant or Cow). Bamboo also has very little nutritional value so a Giant panda has to eat an large amount of it per day ( up t0 14kg) and has a very sedentary ( lazy) lifestyle as it unable to obtain a lot of energy from its Bamboo diet.
