This plant is one of those carnivorous plants, it traps any insect that goes inside it! The inside walls of the pitcher plant are waxy and slippery so the insects are trapped. The rim of the pitcher actually has teeth. More information is given at the bottom of this post. These pictures were taken in the Botanical Garden in Singapore.
