What are carnivorous plants?

    Carnivorous plants are plants that get many of their nutrients by trapping insects. They still photosynthesis and so do not need to obtain any energy from their pray but they are usually in nutrient poor areas and need to obtain nutrients (especially nitrogen) by catching and digesting animals, usually insects. Some plants have moving parts that actually chomp down on the prey item. Others simply wait for an insect to crawl in and get stuck. Very fascinating plants.
