​The venus flytrap is a feisty, flesh-eating plant with toothed leaves like snapping-jaws that trap and devour insects and spiders. 

They live in nutrient-poor soils so rely on their elaborate traps for food. Venus flytraps are only found on the East Coast of the United States where they desperately need protecting as their numbers are rapidly declining due to poaching, habitat loss and fire suppression.
