Discovery Venus Fly Trap Must Feed! OM NOM NOM

If I wanted a normal Venus Fly Trap, I’d go to my local florist. But normalcy is boring, so I’d pick one up from the Dicovery Store. Sure, it might not be a “real” plant, but can a real plant lure insects into its grasps, sense the fly’s motion, and then chomp down on the little guy, swallowing him (or preferably, her) whole? I thought not. (Actually, I’m pretty sure they can.)

After being swallowed, the fly drifts into a containment jar, where you can keep your fly friend forever and ever, pointing your finger and tormenting him about how he’ll never see his wife and 4 billion larva children ever again. — Andrew Dobrow
