We bought Jaymi a Venus Flytrap and today was the day that we learned all about carnivorous plants.
I learned so much! It's a topic I didn't know much about.
For example, did you know that there are actually 5 type of traps that various carnivorous plants have?
Bladder traps, Snap traps, Flypaper traps, Lobsterpot traps, and Pitcher traps.
And did you know that you should never feed a Venus Flytrap, a caterpillar, a ladybug, or anything BUT an insect?
We made a little fold-out book about carnivorous plants, and even did a presentation for Mark, acting out the different types of plant traps.
Also, Jaymi found a fuzzy little caterpillar yesterday, and wanted to keep it to watch it turn into a butterfly (or a moth), so we made this pop bottle into a home for it today. She named it, of course. Fuzzy-Wuzzy. ;)
