    The leaves of the temperate species don't "roll" up, but they do curl a little, esp. if the prey is at the edge of the leaf. It's a slow process and not very dramatic, but over time it is observable.

    most mexican pings will 'dish' under their prey, forming a small depession. P.lusitanica has rolled edges already, and will roll slightly more with prey but not significantly

    if the prey is close to edges of leaf, it will slighty roll for temperate and mexicanz. Keep rollin' rollin' rollin'! yea!
