People are as desperate for good selfies as they are desperate for good dick. Put them together, and it’s just too hard to resist. Via Live Science:

The Cambodian government recently asked people to stop picking a rare carnivorous plant that, when viewed from a certain angle, looks a lot like human male genitalia.

The Cambodian Ministry of Environment shared images on Facebook of three women snatching up pitcher plants and posing with them, and ministry officials requested that members of the public leave the rare plants alone, Cambodian news website the Khmer Times reported.

“What they are doing is wrong and please don’t do it again in the future!” The Ministry of Environment wrote on May 11 in the Facebook post.

Insects feed on nectar around the mouth of the plants’ modified leaves that, when mature, resemble pitchers. When insects fall inside the pitchers, they drown in digestive fluids and the hungry plants absorb their nutrients. A pitcher plant’s phallic resemblance is most pronounced when Nepenthes’ leaves are still developing and the pitcher is closed.
