This dissection of a tropical Nepenthes Pitcher Plant is kind of unexpected. You would expect seeing lots of small bugs and animals… But not some huge WASPS!

Dissection starts at 1:45:

This makes me think that 2013 (the video was posted in September 2013) was a really waspy year (at least in GB)! But according to a comment on the Youtube video, the stomach of such a carnivorous plant should normally be full of any bugs… Wasps are more attracted because of the aroma and pollen the flower contains.
