Venus Flytrap Devours Large Wasp

Occurred on September 16, 2019 / Pinetop, Arizona, USA

Info from Licensor: "I am a plant hobbyist with a love of rare species and carnivorous plants. This year, my Venus Flytrap (Dionaea Muscipula 'King Henry') had a great year and had grown very large 2-inch traps. Generally, they like to eat flies and other small insects, but this year it was a bit more famished. The plant got so big, it was eating wasps and Yellowjackets. I was lucky enough to be outside drinking coffee when I caught it in action. The fact that these plants have evolved to hunt, trap and devour living creatures is truly mind-blowing. Aliens on earth."
