Sadly, that's true Poppa - mankind seems to have a 'death wish' when it comes to nature, they don't seem to understand that humans are just A part of nature and NOT the reason for it! :(

This article caught my eye - apparently there's a plant that 'eats' sheep!

Image
"The RHS Puya chilensis is expected to be in bloom in the glasshouse for about a week."

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) at Wisley said the Puya chilensis, a native of Chile, would bloom in the next few days and last about a week.

In the Andes it uses its sharp spines to snare and trap sheep and other animals, which slowly starve to death.

The animals then decay at the base of the plant, acting as a fertiliser.

The RHS feeds its specimen on liquid fertiliser.


I had never heard of this plant or its bizzare method of 'eating'.

It reminded me of the book/film "The Day of the Triffids."

Image

I wonder if the author John Wyndham received any inspiration from these wonders of nature?

"A group of the 'sheep-eaters' waiting for their next meal......."

Mother nature is truly wonderful!
