    Well I was at Walmart today and saw the 2004 Guiness Book Of World Records. I was looking through it when I saw a pic of my favorite Cp, Darlingtonia. Then I read the record that went with it. The record was "Largest Pray Caught By an Carnivorous Plant". The record holder was Nepenthes and they went on named an few and where they are. It even said "shown below." But the picture was clearly darlingtonia and not nepenthes. I wonder who was incharge of that section? Perhapes someone needs to go up to them and give them an lesson about CPs.

    I think they ment generally. You know tales of frogs and monkeys caught in the traps. But still geting the picture so wrong is just poor reaserch.

    oh I see, yea I agree. You'd think a major book like that would research the topic a little more than that. Thats sad.

    Actually, I believe there are many people out there that do not know what a Venus Flytrap is. I took a few photos of my plants into work and one person ( a customer ) wanted to know where they could get a cactus like that.

    Another person asked if these were the praying mantis that people had been talking about in their gardens.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Perhaps also someone should give them a lesson in grammar and spelling -- unless it was a religious event that the plant caught.

    Wow, thats is pretty embarrassing on their end. I don't expect people to know what pitcher plants are or misname them, but the VFT is pretty famous and definately not a cactus. And to confuse a plant with a praying mantis is downright shameful.

    I love praying mantises! I sure hope you aren't feeding them to your plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
