View Full Version : Flytrap Mutation
04-01-2002, 01:56 PM
New evidence today shows that the VEnus Flytraps DNA is partially of extra terrestrial origin, many suspected this already because it is widely known that the home range of the Venus Flytrap is a Meteor Impact Crater.
Compounding this discovery, when scientists visited the core of the crater they found a mutant flytrap with traps in excess of six inches, actively snapping at insects flying around the plant.
Tissue samples of the plant have not been taken, as the scientist that approached the plant was suddenly sucked down into the ground by what ground penetrating radar later revealed to be giant bladders similar to the bladderwort, these bladders have been confirmed to belong to the same mutant flytrap.
Additionally, several skeletons were identified in older bladders, and are believed to be the bones of plant poachers.
Isn't it a great DAY?

And you all laughed when I presented my first preliminary evidence some two months back. So that X-Files book wasn't so far off the truth then was it? :-)
