A fly lands on a plant's shimmering leaf. But when the insect tries to leave, it can't. The leaf's sticky surface has the fly trapped! As the fly struggles to escape, the leaf starts to move. Slowly, small hairs on the leaf fold in around the fly and the plant devours the insect. Flies, moths, and gnats make a perfect meal for some carnivorous plants. Others eat spiders, worms, and pill bugs. Some large carnivorous plants have even eaten rats and mice! Learn more in this edition of Nature Watch
