Insect-Eating Plant

These pitcher-looking parts trap and eat insects. How cool is that?

  1. Did you see Venus’ Flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) there? These things not only eat insects, but actively move fast to trap them as well.


  2. There’s also a carniverous species of potato. Of the hundreds of varieties of potato we only see a few in the store.
