Five of the World's Weirdest Plants


Some plants don't act like plants at all. Some trap prey, mimic animals, or smell bad.

Pitcher plant ftw. In girl scouts, we learned that this was one of the plants used in jungle survival.
After looking at what was inside one,I decided I would rather eat tree bark.
