Bat Uses Compostable Toilet

OHHHH NATURRRRE… you came and you gave without takinnnnng… sort of.

No, but seriously, read the article linked below.  This is some James Cameron Avatar shit.

“This is a great study that, for the first time, exposes the mutualistic link between a small woolly bat and its pitcher plant host,” Struebig told Discovery News. “There have been anecdotal reports of this bat species being found in pitchers, but most people considered this to be only a temporary arrangement.”

Struebig explained that bat experts consider such temporary spots to be a “day roost” or a “satellite roost,” “a convenient stop-over on the way to the bat’s main home after a night of busy foraging.” In this case, though, the pitchers appear to serve as the bat’s primary home.

Both he and Grafe now wonder if other carnivorous plants in the region enjoy beneficial relationships with bats and different animals. (source)
