Caption

Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) with beetle. Venus flytraps are carnivorous plants that capture insects in their hinged two-lobed leaves. When an insect lands in the gaping trap, touch- sensitive hairs trigger the leaf to close, trapping the insect behind a row of interlocking spines. The insect is then digested by enzymes. Its carnivorous diet provides the plant with nutrients it would not otherwise obtain from the poor soils in which it grows. D. muscipula is native to the bogs of South and North Carolina, USA.
