Giant carnivorous plant in Philippines

Rumours of its existence began circulating back in 2000, when two Christian missionaries described seeing enormous pitcher plants while wandering lost on Mount Victoria in the central Philippine highlands. Sufficiently intrigued, a group of pitcher plant experts organised an expedition to this remote area and found an enormous plant with liquid traps large enough to drown a rat.  The new species has been named Nepenthes attenboroughii, after the naturalist broadcaster David Attenborough.
