While the carnivorous cravings of most flesh-eating plants are limited to small insects, one exception is the pitcher plant. It can consume anything that fits in its mouth--including a mouse!
Step right up and witness a collection of real bigmouths, a gathering of strange creatures with a real appetite for destruction. Join us as we look to the skies, seas, and land to present weird and wonderful animals that prefer to swallow their food whole. From beasts that use their mouths as traps to botanical death pits to one giant with a mouth so large it can kill millions in one bite, you better keep your eye on this group of gulping creatures before they swallow you whole.
