The Venus Flytrap is a favorite for all ages. The carnivorous plant catches it’s own prey – predominately insects and spiders by literally trapping them in the “mouth” of the plant. Prey is caught when they prey trigger the sensitive mirco hairs on the inner surfaces of the plant – leading it to close them up!
