Venus flytrap 10 March 2010

Eu Fai spotted a wierd looking plant with a Fly's wings sticking out of it in the Usborne children's encyclopedia (Yes, my kids go through encyclopedias for FUN!).

So I told him it was a Venus flytrap and asked if he wanted to see how it eats insects on Youtube.

He watched the plant devour a frog, a slug and various insects.

Then he exclaimed " That plant is alive! It moves and eats! It is like an animal!"

Oh My! What a teachable moment.
