Carnivorous Plants in ActionVenus Fly Trap

Watch the Venus Fly Trap in action with this great video about carnivorous plants. David Attenborough helps explain how the Venus Fly Trap and Pitcher plants catch animals and eat them for food. When hairs on the Venus Fly Trap are touched by an insect it triggers the plant to close on its victim, giving them no chance of escape, closing tighter and tighter as the insect struggles to escape. Acids on the inner surface are then produced which kill and dissolve the unlucky insect.
