Venus flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) are interesting carnivorous plants native to the bogs of Carolina in US. They grow inthe subtropical
wetlands that are high in moisture and acidity but low in nutrient,
thus, the evolution of its insect-eating ability !!
It catches its prey, chiefly insects and
arachnids, with a trapping structure formed by the terminal portion of each of
the plant's leaves, which is triggered by tiny "trigger hairs" on
their inner surfaces. When an insect crawling along the leaves contacts a hair, the trap
prepares to close, snapping shut only if another contact occurs within 20 seconds
of the first strike, and the plant will only begin digestion after 5 more
stimuli to ensure it has caught a live bug worthy of consumption.
