    Well, it might be too big, but the D. adelae is enjoying a small cricket. I am hoping to take photos every hour to see how the tenticles react to the cricket.


    Tenticles have already moved into contact with the cricket.

    Here is what the plant and cricket look like 1 hour later:



    After 2 hours ( It is still alive ):



    Closer view:



    Next morning, 8 hours later ( Cricket is dead ):


    More tenticles have come into contact with the cricket. The tenticles on the tip of the leaf have surrounded the cricket's antennea.

    The second morning (1/15/2003):


    Even more tenticles have moved into contact with the cricket.

    1/16/2003


    The cricket is not looking so good.

    Becareful.....everytime my adelae catches something large, like a medium fly, the corpse will start rotting and the rot will spread to leaves. might be the high humidity kicking in.

    Well, I wan't able to get the number of photographs that I wanted. Seems I wanted sleep more than taking the pictures.

    Anyway, I will update the photos each morning until Friday.

    P.S. I will watch out for rotting of the cricket. I have scissors standing by for emergency leaf removal. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Yes, prey removal for this and the other Queensland Sisters (schizandra and prolifera) is strongly recommended. Nice photos Nick.
