    Not possible. Even if the biggest cultivars of venus fly traps were mutantly huge and could trap a baby mouse it would never be able to contain it.

    I say this myth is busted.

    not even the little pinkies? ? ?

    even if they were small enough mice, the trap would rot quickly.

    I agree the pinky would be too big, however a baby frog would small enough, But I donít like the thought of putting a little frog in one of my plants. (Their too cute )

    an interesting idea, and worth a try, but neps still hold the claim to fame for being vertebrate eaters.

    I wonder why so many people think carnivorous plant growers are weird.

    I think it's possible. My rat had babies once, and they are about two thirds of an inch long. And i've read some cultivars can be up to two inches long.
