New plant

Study break! Any fans of Planet Earth out there? I mean the BBC version, with the soothing voice of David Attenborough, not Sigourney Weaver (not that there's anything wrong with Sigourney Weaver). By the way, why in the world did they re-release a US version with Sigourney Weaver doing his voice over? I never understood that.

ANYWAY, if you are a fan (and even if you aren't), check it out:

The newly discovered Nepenthes attenboroughii, a rat-eating pitcher plant! Named after Sir David Attenborough himself! Article here.

(PS--thanks for the heads up, David!)

You might also like his "Life in the Undergrowth." It's pretty spiffy.
