Pitcher plants are carnivorous plants whose prey-trapping mechanism features a deep cavity filled with liquid known as a pitfall trap.

The Black bat flower (Tacca chantrieri)! The unusual flowers of this member of the yam family can get up to a foot across with long whiskers that can grow to 28 inches long. The flowers can also be brown or white. They grow in the tropical forests of the Yunnan Province in China.
