Venus fly trap has got to be one of the coolest things nature has created.  It even fascinated Darwin.  A plant that evolved to eat insects because the soil lacked nutrients.  Now of course they are plants, so they still create photosynthesis.   But they grow slower without their buggy counterparts.

I wasn't as fascinated with them, till I found myself in a room that generally always has mosquitos.  I figured, time to try some plants. 

There are of course more than one type of plant carnivorous.  Although that name is a bit misleading, as they tend to eat bugs.  Not stake.  Either way, it's opened up my eyes to a world I sort of imagined might interest me, but now am being enthralled in.

It's also just kinda cool.  I mean the plant eats bugs.  That's just, kinda amazing.

The other one I got, I have no idea what it's name is, but from what I gather is another carnivorous plant but not the moving type.  This one drowns bugs.  But it's too small for me to tell how it actually works since it hasn't grown big enough yet.  So cool.
