MYSTERY FLOWER- THE VENUS FLYTRAP

THE VENUS FLYTRAP(DIONAEA MUSCIPULA)-
is a carnivorous plant that catches and digeats animal prey (mostly insects and arachnids). the trapping structure is formed by the terminal portion of each of the plants's leaves.
the leaf has two primary regions: a broad flat typical leaf-like region called the leaf base that is capable of carrying out of the ground , and the trapping mechanism, called the leaf-blade or lamia, at the end of the leaf that is composed of two lobes with hinged together by a midrib. each trap usually has between two and five "trigger" hairs on each hole with three trigger hairs on each hole being normal. the edge of the trap is lined with teeth of finger like cilia that lace together when the trap shuts.the leaf-base and leaf-blade(trap) are joined together by what is referred to as the petiole.
