Nepenthes ventricosa comes from the highlands of the Philippines. They must get some scary looking bugs up there to have such a ferocious looking carnivore also. But I am brave enough that someday I will go there for you and find them in the wild and take a picture of one beautiful N. ventricosa in habitat eating a large insect or small rodent. For you!

And more… Many more.
