Here's my doodle of my favorite new friend ❤️ #pokemon
This plant is nepenthes hemsleyana. Most pitcher plants are carnivores, adapted to catch prey, but this one's different. It's no good at catching insects. Instead it's a bat house!
The pitchers are the perfect shape and size for bats to roost, and they're adapted to be easy to find with echolocation. In fact, they're such ideal sleeping places that bats will actively choose the plants over other places!
Bats aren't too fussy about where they poop, so the plant gets a steady supply of fertiliser from all the guano its guest leaves behind.
