What do Venus Fly Traps eat besides flies?

    Despite the name, Venus Fly Traps catch more than just flies.  They don’t discriminate;  any insect or arachnid will do.  Here is a Venus Fly Trap pictured after having trapped an unfortunate bee:

    Some people think it is okay to feed your cat things other than insects, like meat and nuts, but this is far from the truth.  Feeding a venus fly trap anything other than insects could kill it.

    Venus flytraps also eat small frogs. Just as long as whatever insect or small amphibian fits inside, the fly trap should be good to go. Sometimes, if a flytrap eats an insect that’s too big and it’s legs stick out, bacteria from the insect can actually infect and kill the flytrap.
