This Sarr pitcher tried to munch on a yellow jacket. As you can see, the yellow jacket chewed a hole from the inside of the pitcher. (Thankfully, turkey and stuffing have never been known to do such a thing.) This was a lose-lose situation. The yj did not succeed in getting any further out than pictured here. I would imagine the hole was simply not big enough for its abdomen to pass through and it eventually exhausted itself and died. The pitcher was now useless for further insect nutrient extraction since any new insect prey would not have any digestive fluids to die in.

Idk if amount counts but I think my Capensis is at least a binge eater.
