Pitcher Plants

Pitcher Plants have deep, liquid-filled chambers just waiting for a flying meal to wander in.


Sundews have another solution—a sticky substance on the end of long tentacles that catches insects.


Venus Flytraps have leaves split into two parts (like a mouth) that snap shut if an unsuspecting bug decides to peek in.
