The Venus flytrap (also referred to as Venus’s flytrap or Venus’ flytrap), Dionaea muscipula, is a carnivorous plant native to subtropical wetlands on the East Coast of the United States in North Carolina and South Carolina.….0…1.1.64.psy-ab..1.8.782…0i13k1j0i7i10i30k1j0i8i7i10i30k1.0.g8m7FALnL7Y


The Venus flytrap turned to carnivorous to survive in the nutrient-poor soil of its native habitat in North and South Carolina, in and around the Green Swamp. To get the nutrition it needs, the flytrap lures insects, including ants and flies, into the jaws of its trap.

Fortunately for people, Venus flytrap plants can’t eat anything much bigger than a housefly and mostly they eat mosquitoes and gnats. If you put the tip of your finger in the flytrap’s bug eating mouth, it will quickly snap shut, but it won’t hurt at all.



Venus fly traps have appeared as enemy’s in games such as:

and Super Mario bros.

and these were very successful in their games and it provided as an enemy and a hazard.

These in the game are used to jump over as they are dangerous and might inspire myself to use that idea in my game as it will help become more successful as a game.
