Evolving Plant Life:


Pitcher plant by MShades on flickr
The Eatamongus plant eats small birds and rodents, but prefers cheeseburgers and table scraps--makes a fine 'no maintenance' pet, but not recommended for vegetarians.

The Vampirus Oclitorus plant (or Swallow Plant) relies entirely on the human male for pollination. And it feeds by pricking the male organ with small teeth hidden under her lips, and sucks the blood much like a vampire bat. Because this creates a pleasant tingle and win-win situation, this plant is also one of the most intelligent. But intelligence comes at a price--90% of these plants are now obese and owners are asked not to feed them so much.



Magnolia by dougwoods on flickr
The Dillydo plant is an outdoor plant. But now totally dependent on the human female for pollination, it is on the verge of extinction. The idea was that the seed is injected into the woman’s saliva during pollination. Then wherever she spits, a new plant will grow. But nowadays more and more women are just swallowing the seed. Or taking the fruit indoors for personal use before fully ripe.
