    The Carolina bilogical something or other company sells carnivorous fungi (probably not the species in the article though) kits as well as other interesting stuff.

    That was very interesting! So the fungus in that article uses a kind of sundew type sticky trap. At the end of the article the writer said that there was another type of fungus that uses trap like mechanisms to trap prey. So that one could have bladderwort type traps, right?

    I THINK that maybe that other trap-fungus has loops where nematodes crawl through and it closes on them or something, I thought I saw some thing like that in a book.

    Yes, I have seen these under a microscope, in soil from our own compost pile! Very interesting design indeed!

    Yes, that one exists. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] There are many cps that exist that people do not know about. I think there are about 20 different genus of cps
