Venus Flytrap

The Venus Flytrap is a plant that feeds on insects.  It even feeds on baby frogs that do not know better but unsuspectingly leap into its trap.  However, if an insect is big, it will kill the plant.  The plant dies when it withers, turns brown and drops onto the ground.

When an insect flies into a trap, it shuts instantly.  The insect is trapped inside and cannot get out even if it tries very hard to escape.  Then, the Venus Flytrap feeds on the insect.  Yum-yum, yummy!
