A new twist in the food chain

The unique and surprising role division in nature of carnivorous plants provides an interesting twist in the traditional food chain. These extraordinary plants have adapted impressively to grow in nutrient-poor environments and get their nourishment from an unusual source, insects and sometimes even larger prey.

The power of evolution

The varietyof carnivorous plants on is a testament to the extraordinary adaptability of nature.

Some of these plants, such as the Venus Flytrap, have evolved a trap mechanism that quickly snaps shut when prey walks on its hairs. In addition, it is also exceptional in the plant world that a plant like the Venus Flytrap can count. What do we mean by this?

The Venus Flytrap has hairs inside its mouth. When an insect walks over it and moves the hairs twice within 20 seconds, the trap closes. Should this not happen within 20 seconds, the trap resets itself.

The pitcher plant process looks like this: The insect lands on the cup, the insect's legs land on smooth grooves which are located in the rim of the cup, the insect thus loses its grip and falls into the cup. The hairs inside the cup are firm and prevent the insect from flying out again. The cup eventually fills itself with enzymesthat digest the insect.

The Sundew, also known as Drosera use yet another completely new trap structure. Namely, the Sundew uses sticky droplets to secure its prey. The Sundew wraps itself around the prey, so to speak, to start the digestion process.
