Vegatable Carnivore 5/5

Explore, 16 November 2009, #456

 

This tiny plant loves a peace of meat once in a while. The shiny dew looks like innocent waterdrops, but in fact it's a kind of glue witch lure, capture, and digest insects. The insects are used to supplement the poor mineral nutrition that sundews are able to obtain from the soil in which they grow.

 

Curious? Found more about this little green monster on Wikipedia
