Is the Pitcher Plant the only plant that we know of to evolve into a toilet?

    Well, it didn’t originally evolve to be a toilet… It was designed to capture insects using a sweet smelling nectar. Ants and other crawling insects would crawl up the edge and fall into the plant’s digestive juices and die. Shrews just took advantage of the plant’s ability to attract insects, so they can also eat while they go to the bathroom. However, they are the first plant seen exhibiting this behaviour.
