Venus Flytrap - Dionaea Muscipula 'Akai Ryu'
Venus Flytraps are infamous for their ability to trap, kill, and consume insects. Inside each trap are small hairs that can sense pray. When the sensory hairs are brushed or touched it triggers the trap to close. It then emits secretions which dissolve the insect and completely breaks down the body for food.
