The Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is an iconic carnivorous plant. Plants that eat animals do so to make up for poor soil quality, lacking in nitrogen and phosphorous. Insects are attracted to the red, flower-like open traps. The traps themselves are modified leaves - tiny trigger hairs will close the trap if they are touched sequentially in a short time.

They will adorn the swamp in which the fire ants have made their home in the upcoming 4th tier of Empires of the Undergrowth - and most of their diet is ants!
