we discovered plants eating vertebrates in @Algonquin_PP. WHAT! Undergraduate field course obs helped 2 document this 1st.

COOL, u say, but likely rare & uncommon? NO! Subsequent survey finds ~20% of pitcher plants contained salamanders!

In Aug 2018, I taught a field course in @Algonquin_PP at the @AlgonquinWRS. In preparing students 2 discover the wonderful world of #bogs, I turned up several pitcher plants to show them – and in one found a young juvenile yellow spotted salamander!!
"Well that’s surprising" I said. (on the day it may have sounded like #WTF. I took some photos – tweeted them – and thought I'll have to check the literature to see if this strange thing has been seen before – write a note if not.
