There are plants out there that will eat your children

And rodents. Turns out there is this bastard carnivorous plant in the Philippines that is big enough to trap a rat or other small rodents inside and slowly digest it via flesh-eating enzymes. Nepenthes attenboroughii, named after Brit naturalist Sir David Attenborough, is the newest undiscovered species of pitcher plants.

Mmm. Manflesh...

Which brings me to my next question: how long until we finally discover a Sarlacc? Because, if we remember correctly, what that evil plant from Hell mentioned above does to its prey is pretty much exactly what happened to Boba Fett:

"In his belly you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand years."

For now, when vacationing in the Philippines, keep little Timmy within eyeshot. These plants eat people.
