The Lobster Pot Trap


The Lobster Pot Trap


Found in the Genlisea plant, this is an interesting trap. Underground, the roots/traps are hollow with opening slits along the length. Small prey (mosquito larvae and such) enter these slits. However, sharp hairs point inwards, forcing the prey to the digestive chamber of the plant. Once prey enters trap, it's impossible to escape.
