On the tepuis of Venezuela, there are a lot of interesting plants. That is, if you are a plant person. But even if you are not a plant person, the carnivorous pitcher plants are about as cool as plants get. Here is a photo of a pitcher plant flowering.
These plants eat insects, which makes them interesting, but they also host an endemic frog.
There is evidence that the frog's poop is part of the food stream for the plants on the tepuis. And how cool is that!
