Insect eating Venus Flytraps


I had a Venus fly trap, but it only worked once and then died. Still it did catch one fly. These flesh eating plants have always fascinated me and this documentary clip shows how the biological contraption works. When you look at tiny intricacies like this and think of all the other wonders of life; I can't help thinking that such things don't come about by accident. If evolution does exist; it must be guided by some all seeing all knowing entity. In this clip I found myself wondering about the trapped fly's compound vision - the advance biological engineering makes the mind boggle.
