    How Close is the Fire Ant Update?

    I know a lot of you will be sick of the "it's nearly ready, very soon!" line.

    Screenshot Saturday - Venus Flytraps in Action

    The Venus flytrap lives in nutrient-poor soil, so like many plants here in the swamp it must consume invertebrates to survive. The leaves are tipped with traps that exude nectar, attracting ants and flies. Trigger hairs on the inside of the trap cause it to snap shut when touched, effectively...

    A showcase of some of the swamp environment coming to the 4th tier of Empires of the Undergrowth. Pitcher plants, Venus flytraps and sweetbays adorn this damp landscape - the arena in which your fire ants will prove their worth.
