    I think certain pest/bugs can ingest the capsaicin and use it for defense, making them less appealing to predators.

    I don't know what kind of pepper they were, but the hottest I have ever experienced were in a seafood restaurant in Recife Brazil. Little green peppers about the diameter of a pencil and an inch long, soaking in a small bowl of vegetable oil. 3 drops of oil in a giant plate of paella was a killer.

    They just keep refilling the oil, and change out the peppers once a year...
